My mood today has been as soggy and dark as the weather outside.  As I sit at my desk and look out the window at the rays of sun struggling to peek through heavy rain clouds in the sky- I am trying my best to wish those clouds away.  If not the clouds, then perhaps I can wish my soggy mood away.  I will do this by thinking of all the delightful things in my life....

Empty laundry baskets.
Freshly vacuumed carpets.
The english language beautifully written.
Watching my children sleep.
The moon shining through my open window at night.
A rich, moist slice of chocolate cake.
A shoulder rub from Mr. M., without having had to ask.
Clean bathrooms.
Listening to my favorite music.
An unexpected hug from one of my children.
Visiting with a friend.
No bills in the mail.
Sunshine, of course.  I will never take sunshine for granted again!

What is delightful to you?

  1. Mmmm, all of those things sound so good. Especially the clean house part, I am dying to do a thorough cleaning but work is calling me away from that. It's amazing how good a clean house can make you feel.
