Each day this month I'll be sharing a list of things corresponding to the alphabet letter of the day that encourage and uplift me, the little things that make smile. I hope you'll join me, and maybe add some of your own in the comments!
Son - My amazing son, Ian! He's an air traffic controller for the Dept. of Defense, but to me he's still that sweet little boy with the huge loving heart for his Mom. I am so very proud of the man he's become!
Sanctuaries - I love beautiful churches - from small rural structures to large cathedrals, they are places of peace, meditation and worship, and one can always sense the Spirit that dwells within.
Sparkly Things - I have a penchant for brightly colored sparkly things, something about sparkles makes me smile. Must be my childlike mind. :-)
Sophie - The beloved matriarch of our kitty clan. Sweetest little kitty God ever made! I wish we could clone her. A rescue kitty with some Maine Coon blood, she's a beauty... see her picture over there in the sidebar!
Sushi- My daughter introduced me to sushi and I love it! Papa Bear shakes his head and calls it "bait" :-)
Sunrise & Sunset- The most beautiful times of the day here, with our wide open spaces and the sky painted in brilliant colors - God' masterpieces!
Sisters - I am the middle child with an older sister and a younger one. They both live in the Midwest so I rarely get to see them but we text back and forth each day and have gotten a lot closer than we used to be. Sisters are good to share with!
Seashells - Searching the beach for tiny treasures - great fun and great exercise with all that bending and stretching to pick up shells. We look so cute walking along the shore with our yellow plastic buckets like a couple of little kids :-)
Stars - Is there anything more magical than twinkling stars in the inky black night sky? I like to believe that they are windows where the souls of those we love can look down on us and we can gaze up at them. <3
Silence - To some it may be strange or uncomfortable, but to me silence is the beautiful absence of noise that heals my spirit after a day or week of non-stop ringing phones and dealing with people. When I am home alone I most often sit in silence, it is even more soothing to my soul than music.
