Today, I smelled my daughters pillow and it made me smile cause it smells just like her even when she was a baby she had the same scent. It made me wonder, what made YOU smile today?

Tracy,

What a great question! And sweet answers so far!

Honestly, I am lucky to have too many to list, but a few of them are

*the funny things my kids share (they live for humor!)

*DH came home for coffee in the middle of the day

*watching DS snuggle with one of the cats (she is completely convinced that he is her mother)

*and I'm really enjoying my Spring Fling house right now!

Thinking about what a great day I had yesterday, getting closer to finishing my first house (thanks to some great inspiration), and seeing the Pierce. :banana:

My baby ducks had their first swim today!! (They are 2 days old now)

Oh, I would love to see pictures of them!

I looked out the window this evening to see my 4 year old nephew wandering across the lawn with Thomas the Tank Engine in one hand and one of those fluffy milkweed things in the other, and his Dad carrying a teddy bear.

My 21 yr old daughter called to tell me she had just played an indoor soccer game. She played for years as a child, as well as outdoor travel soccer, but hadn't played for about 4 years. (She is very good) She joined a womens league and will be playing weekly now. She loved it and sounded so happy so that made me smile.

I also finished knitting my "jute" welcome mat for the Arthurs front porch. I love the way it turned out!

Do post pictures, Rhonda! What did you use for the "jute"? I have been looking for a fine-twist packing jute to try for that, but it all looks too big!

Today I'm snickering & giggling because I thought it was Friday all day yesterday!

So fra today, having had four groups in computer ed and hearing one of the more "shy" ones saying out loud a big "YES!!!!" when she mastered a few of the steps we had gone through today...

And also this picture a friend of mine sent me:

Thirdly, the thought of MR LE Arthur sitting at home awaiting me mumbling about his porch and wanting somem ore attnetion and the fact that I get home early on Fridays....

Hugs and thanks for this question, it just made me realize that life is goooood!

Watching my kitties sleep always makes me smile. They don't have a care in the world. Sometimes they are all curled up in a ball and other times all stretched out with one paw over their face. You wonder if they dream. :)

I'm convinced that our fur babies dream ever since I used to watch our dogs while they were asleep. Riley, our old Beagle, in particular used to make twitches and little sounds as if he were on a scent while he was sleeping. We never hunted him, but both his sire & dam were registered Canadian Beagles (the owners just didn't know which dog was the sire, so they couldn't register the puppies!).

When my girls, who are now in their twenties, were little they just loved Polly Pocket, the ones that were only an inch tall. They gave them all to the little girl across the street when they outgrew them. Today my neighbor brought them back, she thought the grandkids would like them. They still look brand new. What a nice surprise.

Wow, Good question. My boys make me smile everyday.. if it were not for them right now I would be a very unhappy person. There is just so many things that have me so stressed out right now that I dont get too many smiles in anymore. but my boys make me smile everyday.!

I made biscuits for breakfast; my son doesn't cook for himself and his fiancee doesn't cook at all, so their reaction to whatever I cook is a treat to watch!lol

When this question was first asked, I couldn't respond how I wanted to, but I will tell you know. It was the day I got my first ultrasound and saw my baby's heart beating. That definitely put a huge smile on my face.
