Things That Make Me Smile

Today is No D-Day...

What does this mean??? Well, it means that all around the D.O.C. we will not blog, tweet, facebook or talk about diabetes. So in honor of this special day I have come up with a small list of things I would like to share with you. Just a glimpse into some things that make me happy and can turn my frown upside down.

Things That Make Me Smile...

  • A steaming cup of coffee with hazelnut cream and cinnamon...mmmmm

  • Waking up to a cool, crisp autumn morning

  • The laughter of my daughters

  • Warm, cozy pajamas on a cold night

  • A good book

I'm sure that from my list you may be able to tell that fall has officially begun for us, I love fall...the turning of the leaves, warm sweaters, the anticipation and excitement as the holiday season draws near. As I am writing this list, my daughters are enjoying a day of playing with playdoh and coloring...Miss E has asked me to read to her what I'm writing, apparently she isn't satisfied with the list as I have written it and she has requested that I add something to it. So here it is...

  • I love my daughters...more then anything in the world!!!

I think that goes without saying, but she has informed me that my list is much better now that I have added that very important addition. Of course the love that I have for my kids will always make me smile, they bring such joy to my life.

It's funny how little things can bring such joy and happiness, what things make you smile??? I think this post has just inspired me to try to do a list of Things That Make Me Smile once a week here on Hope and's a good reminder to try to enjoy the little moments in life, something that we easily forget to do sometimes. I know I am guilty of's so easy to get caught up in the negative, so today I will have a cup of coffee, put on a warm sweater after the sun goes down, make my girls laugh out loud and maybe finish the day off with a good book!!!
