Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

10 Happy Things

I have been tagged by Gail in MN to list the ten things that make me happy.

Of course, the happiest moment is when my 3 year old grandson, Matthew, without provocation, looks at me and says "I laa you Nammy sooooooooo much!" 

Here are my other Happy Ten Thingies:

10.  Sand between my toes on a beach, listening to the sound of the surf, with  my eyes closed and the sun caressing my body.

9.   Old worn blue jeans against my skin.

8.   Unexpected midnight calls from someone I love.

7.   The relaxed feeling you get just before falling asleep.

6.   Lazy Saturday mornings.

5.   The kindness of J-Landers that I have come to know thru their journals.

4.   Dancing, Dancing, Dancing.

3.   Memories invoked by hearing an old song.

2.   God and his many mysteries sent into my life daily.

1.   Saying Merry Christmas to people who want to take Christ out of Christmas.

 

Instead of tagging anyone since everyone has been tagged, I'd like to ask that we all say a prayer for those people who do not know or will not have God in their life this Christmas season.

Happy lists are a great thing.  I just made my own earlier this evening.  What a great time to think of the things that we are happy about, and the things that we are thankful for.  Merry Christmas!
