Things.

Things that can make me happy:
Orange juice
Watching someone try to whistle after getting a tooth filling
Knowing all the words to a song
Olive oil
The smell of the smoke after you blow out a match
The way my son doesn’t believe that I understand his jokes
The sing-song way the women talk in old movies
Spagetti
Fire
Films that change my life
Photographs of people doing something they always wanted to do
Live music
That cows have best friends

    Nice list.
    It is so cool that cows have best friends.

    And as we live out our lives here on this lovely planet, this becomes more clear each day.

    Thanks

    I love the acknowledgment that cows have besties too! Chewing cud can’t be fun– but mooing with a friend probably is. :)

    Those are some great things! My favorite is how you name bugs around your house! That’s really sweet =)

    Thank you for this list. It reminded me of many things that make me happy and also inspired me to name the ducks that live under my dock, up until now I am been just calling them “the family”.

    Absolutely stunning! It’s a prose, a song, An ode to life.
    Just love the style :)

    Reblogged this on Overratedly Normal and commented:
    In honor of this website’s title, I would like to recycle someone else’s words. This blog post is so simple and so poignant I had to share.

    I admire the poet; for poetry was/is something I have not been able to master and it is so very beautiful. Keep up the wonderful work!

    Truly came out straight from your heart. Loved it.

    Cows have best friends?! Awesome! That thought made my day :D

    Reading this made me happy!! I love cows and name my bugs as well. At the moment I have a huntsman spider that moves from room to room called Macbeth.
