Stuff that makes me smile


April 12, 2012 by Sandi

The following is a list of things that make me smile:

  • Finding an Old Norse Dictionary online in a PDF format.
  • Finding a cool Old Norse language lesson that includes various greetings.
  • Learning that yes, there was a full moon when I need there to be one for my story.
  • Medium-Sized Guy having a GREAT DAY at school.  When he’s happy, I’m happy.
  • David, my older son, bringing home a book from the library that I haven’t read but REALLY want.
  • Sunshine.
  • Remembering that I am GREATLY loved.
  • Dark clouds.
  • Shoes that suit me.
  • Amazing, terrific friends for whom I thank God.
  • The ability and desire to write and make other people smile. Or yell at me.  Or tell me off. I’m good with all of it.
And lastly, something else that makes me smile is that it’s actually healthy to do so.
I have a life rich in things that delight me.  When the going gets stressed, I can almost always find a few of these things to help ease my day.
I hope you can, too!

  1. …I dig the Old Norse stuff. I actually have the digital version of that book but I haven’t read it yet. Won it in something…

    I might have to steal this idea and post my own list. :) You’re right, there is always something to make you smile. It’s important to remember those things!

    Nothing is ever as bad as it could be.
    Keep your faith in God and your hand on a spear.
    Heed the voice of God, wisdom of you elders and the axe of a dwarf.

    The Norse had good advice.
