...a few of my favorite things.

I recently did a post of my top peeves and thought it would create cyber equality to give my top NON-peeves...lol, so here are a few of my favorite things:

1.) Swinging really high on a swing while listening or singing my favorite song...the sky is pretty blue and the breeze is warm.

2.) Due to some technical issue within the building, my job has to close at 10:00 am on a beautiful payday-Friday....DELICIOUS!!! LOL

3.) A little old black woman smiling at me when I get on the bus

4.) Hearing my sons laugh and play with each other.

5.) Watching young girls jump rope on the sidewalk.

6.) Smiling while thinking of that special someone...then they happen to call.

7.) Braiding my grandmother's hair while the rest of my family talks, laughs and watches tv. A.K.A. Family Get-togethers

8.) Surprise Sales and you can use all your coupons. (loves it)

9.) Cooking a good (by their standards) dinner for my sons

10.) Feeling the presense of the Lord (I saved the best for last)

Those are a few of my favs...what are some of yours?

SOME of my faves (in no particular order - just as they came to mind):
1. The JOY in the eyes of my family when I arrive at their homes & the HUGZZZ (living away from family can be tough - even if necessary for growth:-)

2. Joining in on a game of double dutch with some neighborhood girls w/ one of my sisters when she visited me here in nyc - then laughing with my sister as we joked how we must look like "old athletes" to them! lol!

3. DANCING! Lord, I love to DANCE!

4. SummerTIME - no need for a jacket - just put my $ & keys in my pockets & walk freely about the city!

5. Still Summer: Outdoor cafes & restaurants w/ a nice bottle of wine, good company & great people watching!

6. The wonderful relationship with my Dad & the development of a relationship of peace & respect with my Mom!

7.The abundant blessings of Our Father & Creator!
