What are the little things that make you happy? I just realized one for me that seems funny to a former city kid: The day our pasture gets mowed is one of the better days of the year. The grass grows to four and five feet tall here, and as the spring progresses, the field sort of closes-in on my office. I don't really notice it so much until the grass is down, but the mowing makes it feels like out place gets about ten times bigger. And then there is the relief from grass allergies. This marks the beginning of the end of the allergy season for me. Yay! But perhaps my favorite little thing is life is waking up to a hot cup of coffee - ready to go before I even open my eyes.
