I've heard that optimistic people don't necessarily have that much more good in their lives as those that are not optimistic, it is just that optimistic people try to enjoy and relish in the good times and realize that there is a lot of real life that happens in between.
Did that make sense? I hope you understand what I'm trying to say...
Anyway, here are a few of the "little things" that are making me happy and smile right now:
~Oster singing his ABCs to me over the phone while I was trying to talk with Pepe
~Baby noises...the cooing, the squeaks when nursing, the "trying to make a laugh sound", even the gas sounds
~Playing "copy cat" with Oster
~Not getting nervous or knots in my stomach when I had to make a difficult phone call
~Oster going down to bed 2 nights in a row without a huge meltdown
~Oster quietly reading his book in bed in the morning so I can have a little extra time with baby Parker
~Oster's big grin
~getting mail from my sister
~getting a load of laundry done and actually putting it away (this is actually a "big thing")
~depositing checks in the bank
~sending checks by "bill pay"...it's free!
~Oster and Parker holding hands!
What "little things" make up your life right now?
