Some of the Best Things in Life

Falling in love. Laughing so hard your face hurts. A hot shower. A special glance. No line-up at the supermarket cash. Getting mail. A thick chocolate milkshake. Taking a drive along a scenic road. Hearing your favorite song on the radio. Giggling. A long distance phone call. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside. A nice long bubble bath. Hot towels fresh out of the dryer. Laughing at an inside joke. Two hours at the beach. Finding the sweater you’ve been wanting is now on sale for half price. A good conversation. Finding a $20 bill in the pocket of your coat from last winter. Laughing at yourself. Midnight phone calls that last for hours. Writing a book. Running through sprinklers. Friends. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all. Having someone tell you that you’re beautiful. Falling in love for the first time. Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep. Your first kiss. Sweet dreams. Playing with a puppy. Making new friends or spending time with old ones. Hot chocolate. Late night talks with your roommate. Swinging on swings. Road trips with friends. Someone playing with your hair. Going to a really good concert. Making chocolate chip cookies. Cuddling up on a couch to watch a movie with someone you love. Watching the sunset. Wrapping presents under the Christmas tree while eating cookies and drinking eggnog. Hugging the person you love. Watching the sunrise. Long nights with friends talking about nothing and everything.  Song lyrics printed inside your new CD so you can sing along without feeling stupid.  Watching the expression on someone’s face as they open a much-desired present from you. Getting out of bed every morning and thanking God for another beautiful day.
Remembering that many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave a footprint in your heart . . .
