30 Things That Make Me Happy

Daily writing prompt
List 30 things that make you happy.

Thirty is too little to list the things that make me happy. Waking up with warm sunshine on my cheeks, a cool light breeze, trees, and chirping birds make me happy. The smell of coffee, the sight of my sleepy puppy next to me, random baby and kids’ pictures, pictures of my kids, their phone calls, my husband’s massages, and caring and loving gestures. Bachata music and dancing makes me happy too. Road trips, wind blowing on my face as we go down a hill.. blasting music of Pink playlist, butterflies, sight of Bisons in the distance. Sleeping in on weekends and walks to the parks, best friend’s visit, decent tasting red wine and the smell of rain.
