What makes you feel good?

I'm hoping to pinch a few good ideas if I am honest!

I'll pitch in with a few of my own.

Getting hugs and cuddles - from my family, boy friend, the dogs, the Osmonds (!)

Seeing a good film - there have been so many recently

Going to a concert - preferably on the front row, it might take me a week to recover but that is a price I willingly pay.

Sitting in the sunshine and watching the birds in my garden.

Keeping in touch with friends whether face-to-face, on the phone, email or facebook.

    Oh so many things like hearing the children in the garden next door laughing and playing. I am generally a happy person so too many things to list make me happy. :-)

  • most of the above, I think we have to grasp at whatever happiness the comes our way, in so many small things we'd never have thought would be our lives now, and be greatful to God, we are still here to enjoy his nature and sunshine, and even the sound of thunderstorms, very exiting and scary all in one, as long as you're not out in one. xx
