My top ten!!

Isn't this little girl a sweetheart? I fell in love with her the minute I saw her. I think we have all had days like this. I know I sure have. However, today I would like to share with you my top ten things that make me smile:
#1 The sun came up this morning.
#2 We woke up to enjoy it!
#3 A baby is being born at this very moment.
#4 It is always springtime somewhere in the world.
#5 A baby bird is spreading its wings and learning to fly.
#6 A child is giggling as he or she learns to roller skate.
#7 That "special song" from way back when is playing on the radio.
#8 A military man or woman is being lovingly greeted by their family because they are safely home once
again.
#9 There is always a rainbow after the rain.
#10 God's love and care is constant.
What puts a smile on your face?
I hope you are having a beautiful week and enjoying many smiles!

What a wonderful picture, Vicki! That little girl is priceless!

Just a few things that make me smile; my dogs and birds, my husband, chocolate, Charlie Brown, and getting into my bed at night after the heating blanket has warmed it up!

Thanks for sharing!

Blessings,
Teresa

Wonderful post. What makes me smile, waking up next to my husband, answering the phone to talk to my Daughter, seeing our grandkids, getting a hug from my Son, a misty morning just before the sun rises and a full moon.

What a beautiful post! I love that image too, I have it somewhere on my blog. Those chickens crack me up, you have to wonder if the little girl was afraid of them when they were taking the photographs. Have a super day!

That little girl is so sweet. It reminds me of when I was a young girl... my mother sent me out in the chicken coop to gather eggs... I didn't get a single one... I was afraid of those birds! And I never went back in again... my mother told me the only reason we had them... was one Easter, we children begged for baby chicks.. and we got them, ha!

Wonderful , fun memories make me smile.

Have a blessed day!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Vicki... YOU put a smile on my face every time I visit you! Your top ten list is wonderful... Bisous... Julie Marie

Maria said...

I'm smiling because of the beautiful sidebar pictures you included... Love the roses!

I love your list Vicki... many are my heart's delight as well.
When my students say the pledge, I pray for our soldiers... one in particular~a dear friend to my son and our family. Victor is in Iraq now... after his stay in Afganistan.
May they all be safe~

Babies always make me smile... what a thrill it is to visit a nursery in the hospital (gee--- I haven't done that in a while)!

Blessings for the days ahead, Maria
