The scent of rain blowing in on the wind.
The velvet softness of a baby's scalp.
The hush of the year's first snowfall.
The overjoyed smile of someone you haven't seen in a long time.
Mom's chocolate pie.
An inside joke with someone you love that makes you both laugh out loud every time you say it.
Quiet candle light time when the power's out.
The middle of a good book with a page-turner plot.
Sharing secrets with someone who gets you.
Misty sunrise on a lake in the fall.
Great Blue Herons in flight.
Baby birds just learning to fly but still squeaking for Mom.
Brand new kittens/puppies and great old pets.
A tearjerker movie with a happy ending.
A compliment from a complete stranger.
The way that baby wraps you around his/her finger just by smiling.
Christmas decorations and the smell of pine.
These are things I want to see, smell, hear, feel again in this life. These are reasons to live.
Please add to the list with reckless abandon.
