We all made it to Friday and some weeks that's an accomplishment. In our area the weather changed dramatically. It took me half of today to figure out why I felt so much worse and way more pain than normal. Barometric pressure dropped like a rock about 24 hours ago...that did it.

Time for some fun... These are a few of my favorite things...

Puppy kisses
Rainbows
Drives to nowhere with my best friend (Hubby)
Holding hands
Snuggling my grandkids while they sleep, especially when they are tiny
Resting peacefully by my hubby...for he is my favorite thing!

Hi Ya Chutzie,

I'm sorry that your pain levels are up.......mine too unfortunately. Seems to happen with most of the weather changes for me too....We had our first snow fall, not much really but enough to make me miserable. cry

Some of my favorite things.......

The smell of a newborn baby's hair

Cuddling with my kids

Listening to my little one tell me that I am the most beautifulest mommy ever....LOL He lies but what can I say???

Rainbows

Children's laughter

Motorcycle rides ( can't do those anymore but I can remember them)

the smell of the earth after a nice rain

a good cartoon

my cat on my lap

Holding hands or just cuddling with my husband

a ride to nowhere with my family

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I love reading everyone else's lists. It reminds me of just how lucky we all are, even though some days we don't feel that way. Thanks for sharing!
