Achieving the perfect part in my daughters hair (got it today for the first time!!)
The way the stairs look after having been freshly shampooed
The taste of pickle and cheese sandwiches (a special thanks to Wendy Malan for introducing me to them ten years ago--yes, I'm still eatin' them!)
The absence of things in those tiny clutter spots through the house
A freshly bathed and fed nine-month-old fast asleep and on clean bedding
A balanced checkbook
Minty-fresh and clean toilets
The laughter and fascination of my two toddlers and their excitement over bugs, weeds, and piggyback rides
Soft chairs and the sore feet to gratify them
Chowing down on food someone else has made (ahh...Carl's Jr, Taco Time, and Olive Garden, bless you this week!)
Catching the opening ceremony of the Olympics at 2 am today
The lovely feeling that came after realizing the grudge I'd held for two different folks had melted away. It feels almost cliche to say, but it's such a relief to not harbor ill feelings to these two anonymous folk from my ward (no one any of my readers would know). It went away after talking with them (not about anything remotely related to my feelings) and realized that I just didn't want to carry around those icicles any more. It was simple and wonderful to set the icicles down and allow them to melt!
That's about it for now...after all, the post was about the little things (the last thing mentioned was hardly a little one, in it's philosophical connotation or in its discourse, but I felt it was worth mentioning (so there, go stuff that in your pipe and smoke it, angry anonymous editor guy...or...whoever).
