Don't you just love it when life is good, then WHAM it goes from good to grand?

Sometimes when life is good we begin to take all the pluses we're given for granted. Then something happens and we are reminded how wonderful life can be. It can be when something extraordinary occurs, but more often it's the minuscule, simple things that occur which remind us how wonderful life can be.

In younger days, I questioned how and why these things happened. Why did good things happen to me? How could I receive more of the good stuff? In less selfish moments I even asked, How can I help someone else have a good life or at least a small piece of it? Then I got caught up in questioning how could not so good people... people who were selfish, mean, abusive and those displaying criminal behavior continue to receive good things when they didn't deserve them. After awhile I realized I was looking at it in a negative way. When I gave up my questions and began to just live my life, accepting the struggles and challenges and being grateful for all the good I received, things began to turn around.

I know I just love it when... my granddaughter looks up at me and says, "I want to be just like you when I grow up."; my sister calls saying she loves me even though I'm still 'a little shit'; I receive an unexpected email with a well written and heart-felt poem; a baggage checker lets my overweight suitcase pass, as a courtesy, saving $50.00; or a person I'm talking to thanks me for "seeing" them and treating them as a real person. All of these things are simple, but each one of them is very meaningful. I appreciate them. They fill my heart. It makes me want to do more and share more with others so they can know how wonderful life can be.

What are some of the simple things you love?

To be able to make one of my grand babies smile and to receive a hug from one of them (there all around a year old)it makes me smile all over

My 2 year old nephew watching me make a moat in the sand & it filling up with water. That look of "how did she do that?".

How smart my kids are, yes i know everyone says that b ut my son is a genius ( confirmed) & my daughter is the most incredible artist i have ever seen for her age.

I am happy when good, small things happen. It is almost necessity to enjoy them as good, big things are kind of rare these days for a lot of folks. I like finding money, even if it is just a penny.

It's apparent most of us melt when it comes to kids and their response to us. I wish we could keep that sense of wonder alive throughout our lifetimes.

I'm not comparing children to animals OK (although I could write a list about it - ROFL), but the unconditional love a dog displays to it's owner is also a wonderful thing.

When my three year old neighbor hugs me and says, "Sam, you're the best girl!" Then I know I've done something right for a change. When my partner G said to me.. "You are my treasure and I want to keep you around at least one day longer than I am." So many little things.. they are what makes the whole process worth going through.

Life is good.

The times when I help people, some times without them knowing it was me.
Especially around Christmas time. You know; People who are in need or need help. Then when they get it; To see the smile on their faces, the light in their
eyes, and the joy in their hearts. Especially when they don't know who helped.
That is what pleases me and fills my heart with warmth and love for my fellow man

I know what you mean. I was recently sorting laundry from my trip and found a few dollars in a pocket I had forgotten about... every cent and dollar counts.

It's certainly what keeps most of going, especially through tough times.

I love watching my granddaughter's face when she hears something new........she was almost completely deaf the first two years of her life and so new sounds are amazing to her...........the first time she heard birds singing, she yelled out the window Birds shut up you will scare aunt Julie away..........my sister was coming to visit and she was exited about it.........

I love watching my daughter interact with her new boyfriend...........this one is really special.........and its pure joy to watch them fall in love

I love it on days when the pain is minimal and i can get by using one cane while walking in the house

I love it when my friends meet someone new and are excited about it........

I love it when my sister calls and we talk for hours.............we were estranged for a long time and are just getting to the point that we love to spend time time with each other again.......

And i love it when i make new friends here...........

Watch out ladies... there's a man in our midst that likes to travel AND can read a map, so he doesn't have to stop and ask for directions. Be still my heart!

My oldest sister and I grew apart. When I returned from Hawaii last year to live on the mainland, we reconnected and couldn't be closer now. It's wonderful!
You're into money laundering now??
You betcha! Send me your dirty money. I'll launder it for a small fee!

As some know here, I work at a hotel cleaning rooms. And while getting a few bucks as a tip is great...I always love the "Thanks for a great place", or "This place rocks" from the kids. It is the little things that can make a person smile, both in their heart and on their face.

the unconditional love a dog displays to it's owner is also a wonderful thing.
Yep, I can agree to that. Got 5 dogs here, and even when they are driving me crazy, which is almost every day, I love them dearly and couldn't imagine life without them.
