Things I find comforting and make me happy.
Kids playing outside. The laughing and yelling bring a smile to my face.
The birds at the feeders or the water bowl on the bank. The birds eating the seeds on the overgrown garden. We didn't plant anything this year, there's still the catnip, but I wouldn't let Brian have the weeds pulled because I've seen the birds eating the seeds from them. Watching birds pull apart a dandelion pod and nibbling on the seeds at the bottom is relaxing.
The sound of the wind in the trees.
Standing at my favorite window, the one in the laundry room. Having it open, standing on a stool, with my nose against the screen, feeling the breeze against my face. Watching the yard, the bees, the cats, the birds, the sounds of the small windchimes over my head, the big windchimes outside....it soothes my soul.
