– the colour green

rowboats on the river

my lovely Trek bicycle, and the way it rode so smoothly this morning with the freshly pumped-up tires

Maddie’s tag-along bike, and the way she bounces happily along behind me when we ride to soccer games together

a shower in the basement of my office building for when I sweat my way to work on warm mornings like this one

that my children are not as whiny or disrespectful as some of the children on the soccer field (yeah, I know I sound catty, but I’m still thankful)

the flowering trees along my morning bike path

that I don’t always have a rash on my chin, and that it doesn’t look as bad as it feels

a few minutes to watch my beautiful niece play last night

that this morning’s conference call went better than most

creative ideas


that Maddie hasn’t woken up during the night the last few nights and that her breathing is nearly back to normal


my new second-hand linen skirt that swooshes around my legs when I walk

that I’ll get to relax in another lovely bed and breakfast next week

the tulips someone planted amidst the wild grass along the river pathway

the anticipation of a picnic

a little break from soccer tonight

jolly rancher candies

a good book to read (Honeymoon in Purdah – I highly recommend it)

a cup of tea
