I recently read a blog post by a young blogger named Gwen that I follow who had just read The Book of Awesome and posted her own list of awesome things. I thought that was a great idea and told her that she had inspired me to come up with my own list. I’m sure that I’ve done similar posts in the past but figure that it’s time for an update. That’s the great thing about “awesome”; it evolves.
In keeping with the spirit of the book, here is my list of everyday things that are small and seemingly ordinary but awesomely good.
-my first cup of tea in the morning
-opening a new book to page one in anticipation of all that is to come
-reading the last page of a good book, having enjoyed the journey
-the smell of baking bread
-watching the snow fall
-the fact that it’s not dark yet when I’m travelling home after work now
-lying in bed, listening to the soft snores of my kids in the next room
-my co-worker’s squeaky laugh when something amuses her
-the look The Girl gives me when she knows she’s being goofy
-homemade ice cream
-Easter chocolate (yep, tis the season!)
-the sound of a friend’s voice when you need it most
-movies with my kids
-hearing a great song and singing like nobody’s listening
What would be in your Book of Awesome?
