Happy Thoughts

  • People who see a good movie and say, "You would especially like this." Then when you do see it, you find it to be funny, thought-provoking and well-done . . . leading you to be grateful that people see you as appreciating that kind of thing.
  • Someone saying, "You haven't blogged in a while and I miss it."
  • Going to the office refrigerator and finding it filled with party leftovers available for the gnoshing.
  • Wasabi, horseradish, or any other food product that opens up your sinuses.
  • Realizing you've helped someone simply by offering an opinion (that is, of course, based on years of experience and training).
  • When you say the exact right thing to someone who is hurting.
  • When you say absolutely nothing to someone who is hurting and that silence is the best gift of all.
  • Coming to terms with the fact that the really BIG Christmas gift surprises don't happen to single folks of a certain age.
  • Realizing that single folks of a certain age don't have to have surprises to enjoy giving themselves a gift.
  • The fact that a "splash of the color red" is the very best way to describe what adding that color is like.
  • Knowing that for family who feel like friends and friends who feel like family there is absolutely nothing you can do to make them give up on you.
