happy

I wrote this list last week while waiting for class to start, trying to stay cheerful.

daffodils
clean sheets
handmade quilts
the first snowflake
one cloud floating in a robin’s egg blue sky
lazy afternoons
spring rain
new shoes
boxes of crayons
hot cocoa
an empty sanctuary
the smile of a friend
sharing
a fresh, clean notebook
giving
snuggles
bright green broccoli
tank tops and sandals
freckles
unbroken promises
crunchy autumn leaves
learning something new
that first full-body stretch after waking up
a peaceful heart
something found
the act of creating
a cat in a sunspot
starry nights
the sound of waves crashing on the beach
fresh-shaven kisses
the smell of lilacs
