  • My grandchildren...all 7 of them...the things they do...the things they say...just being them!! I am proud of every one of them!!!
  • My wonderful husband of almost 43 years when he is trying to make up to me or when he comes home with a bouquet of flowers for me for NO REASON!!
  • When my blogging friends leave comments especially on those days when I am feeling down and need some good friendly advice..that makes me smile!
  • Seeing my flowers bloom outside that I try to keep alive in this HOT crazy weather!!
  • My husband tells me that I look nice in an outfit,that my hair looks nice, just something looks nice...YOU know what I'm talking about...makes me feel good and I SMILE!!
  • I go to CURVES, I get on the scales and the numbers....go....DOWN!! Ask anyone that is there...I not only SMILE..I usually jump up and down and sometimes SCREAM!!
  • My granddaughter comes running up to me and gives me a big hug and kiss!!
  • Since I do not like to cook...I make a decent meal and get a compliment...that definitely makes me SMILE!!
  • A great PRAISE service!!
  • My computer..blogging...getting new things about my computer!!
  • Eating at Panera Bread Company...Yummy!!
  • Stopping by my neighbors house and having a cup of coffee, visiting and enjoying her company.
  • Knowing that someday when my time on earth is over I will be with my God in Heaven...NOW that is a big GIGANTIC SMILE!!!

Can I give you a list of thirteen Flip Flop? Even though you are not here?

1. Of course my husband makes me smile..Always wanting to go to the "office" any time he can. Of course we ALWAYS go together.That is to Macdonald's for a cup of java...
2.I have no kids, so my Sunday School kids make me smile. I pick up four little ones each week and always buy them little treats and then their mama tells me that I am like a nana to them. This made me smile but it also made me cry!!
3.Riding on the back of our 1100 Goldwing motorcycle with my hubby.
[especially when we were in my beloved Manitoba!]You know the way they can tell a happy biker Flip Flop is that hey have bugs in thier teeth!!
4.Feeding all the birds no matter what color they are at Katy's..the blue jays, cardinals, woodpeckers, sparrows, doves, finches and yes, the black birds too..and the chipmunks and squirrels!!
5.I am always smiling when i am taking pictures with my camera. I NEVER leave home without it!!
6.I smile when we go to the "office" and all the young kids make a fuss over my husband. They love him and call him "Trouble" and sometimes on their break they want to sit with us!!Bernie is somebody they can really trust!
7.In regards to the same "kids" mentioned above, I smile when I take pictures of them and smile even more when I print them out and give them a package of different sized pictures and they always like them.They never complain... I usually put them into one of Katy's sunsets.
8.My mom always makes me smile. When I take her and my Aunt Marion out to the second hand stores and let them loose. Mom is always trying to buy me dresses and I always tell her that if they are not 3X then they will not fit me!!
9.My dad makes me smile. He phones me every morning between 7 and 8 and we have a little talk. Every day I say to him. "What's the big idea waking me up?" He never hangs up with out saying he loves me..but I know that he loves all nine of his kids equally..[even the boy, David,who is in heaven]
10.I have 26 nieces and nephews and in particular I have a little great nephew who makes me smile every Sunday. Every Sunday he comes with his gramma and Bernie and me to Gramma and Grampa Golden's and he is forever getting into trouble and he always wants "Aunt Twerry" to take his picture. He is a real little ham!!
His name is Jordan and he is 3 years old.
11. YOU make me smile Flip Flop!! Ever since I have been writing to Saija, I have been reading your comments and I think you make EVERYBODY smile!!You are a brick!!
12.All of the other blogging buddies make me smile too. They are a real good bunch and all your commenters are good too Sandy. I read each and every one of their comments and they make me smile..
13.Finally "Simon" makes me smile whenever I think of him or look at his picture...He is one nice kitty!!! And I love cats! Terry
