Sometimes I feel like bursting into song with Julie Andrews as she sings “These are a Few of My Favorite Things”. I can see or feel something that suddenly brings back a memory and I am instantly filled with joy. I’m smiling. I begin to daydream!! If no one is looking, I might be tempted to twirl!
I decided to record my favorites and like Maria Von Trapp, when I’m feeling blue, I should just remember these things…
Sheets hanging on a clothesline
Hummingbirds darting from flower to flower
Listening to waves on the beach
Endless hours of scrapbooking
Wooden floors with an occasional creak
The smell of a new book
Finding the record of an ancestor
Hanging petunia baskets
Old barns with faded advertisements on the side
Riding the train
Spending hours in a library
Have you made a list of your favorite things? I’m already thinking of more to add to my list!
