    What are some little things that make you happy? Little pleasures you are thankful for? Jesus is always the top of the list, but what else? 3 to 5 of them...

    1. My kitties sitting on my lap with a content demeanor.
    2. The look on my wife's face when I do something special for her.
    3. The refreshing feeling after a good 7 hours of sleep (rare for me).
    4. Bills paid.
    5. Riding my bicycle with no real destination, but riding like it's crucial to get there.

    There are many more... But those came to mind.

    1) Riding my bike along with my wife on the local trail. 2) Walking (not running) on my treadmill. 3) being around my squirrels and talking to them. 4) The thrill of learning more about the Lord in my daily bible studies. Not necessarily in this order but all have the makings for a good day.

    1. When I finish my ten hour shift and I know that the next day is a day off X
    2. When I hear a song that reminds me of my mum ( love the old songs and my mum X)
    3. Sitting out in the sun and reading a good book
    4. Sitting on a quiet beach watching the sea
    5. Spending time with friends and family, online and in person

    These are not in order of importance

    Here they also have 'quesadillas', which is cheese between tortillas, and often other things added, besides.

    that
    It is so yummy, it's White Cheese that I dip nacho chips in. The dip at Del Taco has some jalapeno in, it's a bit spicy :D. I just found a record store in my town and got 3 for a dollar each. My favorite record so far is the Christian band Burlap to Cashmere

    God's grace is sufficient, but I have many blessings small and large:

    The small are:

    1. my daughter's nap time (which are usually mine too)
    2. Morning Columbian coffee in a Keurig.
    3. A nice fun day at the park in spring.
    4. A cat cuddling up against me at night (and a husband on nights he is off)
    5. Watching my daughter play and just be her happy self.

    I cannot stand jalapeño, my sons loves them!
    I do love nachos though, we usually have them with melted cheddar cheese.
    Records are doing a come back over here in the uk as well - sadly, for me, it's old records from my past that I love, 60's and 70's - I often clean while I am listening to them. At work we have the old songs on for the residents- so me and the carers are often singing along, kind of lifts the mood.
