Wednesday Smiles

My smiles: 

+  I have Fire in the Ice waiting for me on the DVR as a reward for the insane amounts of cleaning and nesting I have been doing lately.  (DH thinks I have officially lost my mind because I've had an unwatched Bones ep sitting for almost 2 weeks.  *g*)
+  Who needs heaven when I have flannel sheets in the winter?
+  My stomach gets in the way, and I can't see my feet very well, but I am 37 weeks + 3 days pregnant today, and I still feel good and have plenty of energy.  This is more than I ever expected; I am intensely grateful.
+  The Steelers won the Super Bowl.  As a Steelers fan by proxy, this is good news.  :)  I could care less on my own, but loyalty to DH and bro-in-law mean I am at least happy that they're happy.

I skipped last week, so if you want to put stuff from then, too, please feel free. :)  Be well, everyone, especially if you're finding it difficult to find things to smile about right now. 

I mostly post fannish things in this journal, but I think it's easy to forget that there is a real person behind the fic and the Bones commentary. Same goes for other people, of course. So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

If you'd like to do so, please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small. Could be the snuggle your dog gave you on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today. I've been posting these since last December. If you feel up to it, please respond—here, in your own journal, or elsewhere. Feel free to post more than one thing and/or respond to other comments.

Why am I doing this? Because I think it is far too easy to get caught up in the stresses, big and small, that we all experience. Being able to focus on one positive thing, however small, can give one a valuable sense of perspective.

Why Wednesday? I figure a little mid-week cheer can't hurt. :)
