Wednesday Smiles

I can't believe I haven't done one of these posts since August 2011 (!?). (Actually, I CAN believe it; two kids have sucked the time out of my life. ;) )I can always use a reminder to focus on gratitude and good things, so this is me, trying to restart a healthy habit.  Let's try something a little different, too, though, if you're up for it.  Because I've been so scarce online, I'm a bit disconnected from you all.  If you have the time to do so, please tell me how you're doing.  Besides what's made you smile recently, what's occupying your time and head-space?  Are you excited about anything particular?  Anxious?  

My smiles:

1) Kid giggles -- children know how to laugh -- really laugh -- especially when they're being tickled.

2) From Season 4 of Arrested Development: "Hello, darkness, my old friend" playing in the background as GOB gazes off into the distance.

Miss you all like crazy. <3 (It's been so long since I've posted regularly on LJ that I can't remember the code for a heart!)

If you have it in you to do so, please tell me what's made you happy or grateful lately. The world can always use a little more sunshine.(If it can't I definitely can!) I see some ppl lurking here; don't be shy. Feel free to share something, even if you never pipe up again. :)

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 December 2007. 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. :)
