10 Things That Make Me Smile When I Am Not Happy (writer's workshop)


1. Petting my cats.

2. Petting my dog.

3. Coming across a good review of my book, “My Funny Dad, Harry” or learning that someone else purchased it.

4. Seeing a pretty sunrise.

5. Watching a funny TV show like Mary Tyler Moore, McHale’s Navy, Hogan’s Heroes or Everybody Loves Raymond.

6. Getting a very nice comment on my blog or a nice email like this one:.
Kathy has left a new comment on your post "Thanks, Bumbles, For This Commenting Award!":

Thanks so much Karen. See, this is why you're so amazing. You're always giving thanks for people and things. You are so selfless, despite the challenges you're facing right now. And that's why people like to come to your blog. Your devotion to your readers is clear.

I like your blog because it's a comfortable place to visit and you always have something fun and interesting going on here. I don't know how you post so often, as Daisy and others do. I saw your post idea post yesterday and may need to give it a try. I'm still struggling a bit.

Anyway, I wanted to say I admire you as a blogger and thank you for including me here.
7. Coming across a funny blog post at Jodi's Journey, “The Junk Drawer,” “Comedy Plus,” “Mama’s Losin’ It,” “Daisy, the Curly Cat,” or “I'm Living Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor.”

8. Going for a walk on a beautiful day.

9. Getting a nice surprise that I had no idea was coming—like a surprise gift or a special treat.

10.  Counting all my blessings and praising the Lord.

This post is in response to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop prompt: Write a list of 10 things that are sure to put a smile on your face when you are not happy.

I think petting cats would make everybuddy happy! Especially Manny and Spunky Doodle.

Thanks for the linky! You make me smile, too. Happy day to you!

That is a great list. Your blog is on my list for happy things. Isn't it funny how many good things you can find when you stop to look?

Well Kathy is right, since you are always being thankful for what you do and have. We all know that and that's why we come here. Now you know too.

Have a terrific day. :)
