What's Awesome to You?

Take a look at the list at this website and then email me what is Awesome to you and I'll post them Hodgepodge.
(Put "Awesome" in the subject line.)

Here are some to get you started:
The smell of a baby after bath time.
Puppies and kittens first opening their eyes.
The the air after a summer rainstorm.
Finding the one last soda in the back of the fridge or piece of chocolate you hid in the freezer.
The crunching sound of walking in the quiet of new fallen snow.
Seeing you did actually did lose weight at the end of the week when you think you didn't!
Selling the family home to just the right person.
Having a tissue when you just sneezed and needed one.
Hodgepodge readers:
Clouds - any kind, any color, but especially in Texas where they're always on the way to somewhere else
The last hour before dawn...
Sleeping wee ones - babies, kittens, puppies
Live music

Finding the perfect person to adopt a rescued animal.

The look on a Cat's face lying on your chest as you massage his head.

Having someone really LIKE something I wrote.

The smell of new-mown hay or grass
The sound of a brook
The smell of a horse
The sight of sunlight glinting in the green of trees
The sight of a beloved’s face

The "first time" that, after an extreme summer or winter, you can open the windows, and air out the house.

Hearing "I love you" from someone under the age of 4

Weighing what I did at 19, 28 years later (despite everything being a little softer, lumpier and lower...) (A real cheerer upper site!)

Having any one of my 3 grown children ask for advice or ask how i used to cook certain things. and of course- meeting you, debbie!

finding a poem, a picture or a letter tucked into a book--it takes you right back to the moment it happened.

Awesome ... a soundly sleeping cat in a sunny window

Fireworks on a clear, windless night.
The stars, seen from a truly dark location.

Blooming daffodils in February
An unexpected hug-- just when I needed one
the blue of the sky and the white clouds
a full moon and stars at night

A grandchild asking for a hug.

My husband's smile.
