The Best (little) Things in Life Are Free (sometimes)

Read this and thought it was just really fun.

Falling in love.
Laughing to hard your face hurts.
A hot shower.
No lines at Wal-mart.
A special glance.
Getting mail.
Taking a drive on a pretty road.
Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
Hot towels out of the dryer.
A good conversation.
The beach.
Finding a $20 bill in your coat from last winter.
Laughing at yourself.
Running through sprinklers.
Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
Having someone tell you your beautiful.
Laughing at an inside joke.
Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.
Waking up and realizing you still have a few more hours to sleep.
Making new friends or spending time with old ones.
Playing with a new puppy.
Sweet dreams.
Hot chocolate.
Watching a good movie cuddled up on the sofa.
Song lyrics printed inside your new CD so you can sing along without feeling stupid.
Going to a really good concert.
Holding hands with some one you care about.
Running into an old friend and realizing that some things (good or bad) never change. Discovering that love is unconditional and stronger than time.
Hugging the person you love.
Watching the sunrise.

Cool mud on a warm day, swimming in a freezing lake, rafting down a river, laying on the grass.....

Fresh air after summer rain, snuggling with a soft kitty on a winters day, walking in the rain with nothing over your head or face......aaaaahhhhhh.

How about having pancakes with your kids on a Saturday morning? Just did that one. Pancake ingredients are almost free. :)

Oh, oh! And watching your beautiful little girl take her first steps while combing her hair and saying, "Pretty!" Doing that one RIGHT now! Aw, I'm gonna cry!
