1.Jordan Jordan makes me smile like no one else. And talking to him will always make me feel better. Unless we're fighting, but usually that ends with a smile cause neither of us can go to bed mad at the other. And usually the smile is big because things are better after the fight than they were before. Also, I especially love holding hands. That is wonderful.
2.A Good Book I love being totally immersed in a book that I could just read for hours. I did that a little this summer with Harry Potter but I haven't done that in while, and I miss it.
3.Standing in a Rainshower I love standing in the pouring rain. Usually lyrics from "Let it Rain" or "Million Pieces" by Newsboys, or "Bring on the Rain" by Jo Dee Messina go through my head, and I let the rain wash everything away. Maybe that's why Texas has been so hard. No rain to stand in.
4.Solving a Hard Math Problem Not just getting the answer, but solving it myself and figuring it out. It's just very satisfying to know that I figured it out, hopefully without any help.
5.Hugs Especially from someone who really means it, or is very huggable. They are warm and fuzzy and happy.
6.Good Grades on Quizzes My students understand something I taught! Yay! If you are a teacher or are going to be a teacher, only you will probably understand that.
7.Swimming in the Ocean I love the smell and the waves and the feel of the water and everything. I really enjoyed living near one and I want to again sometime. Preferably not near one where hurricanes happen, though...
8.Music Especially my Sad Mix and my Hard Grr Angry as F*&^ Agenda Of Rage Bitter White People Mix vol. 1.5. because both are designed to lift my spirits after I've listened to them.
9.Bringing Someone Else Joy It's always a wonderful feeling to make someone else laugh or smile or just be happier than they were before.
10.Singing Praise Songs With All of Me I wish I could put God here but I don't always feel the joy that I know other people feel in their faith. I wish I knew how to fix that but I don't right now. All I know to do is pray and hope that He will change it for me.
