I am jumping on a lovely bandwagon today, my friends. It’s called “Three Things Thursday” and I learned about it on a wonderful blog I just started following, called “The Snail of Happiness“.
It goes like this (copied from above mentioned blog): *three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude — “ feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog [or Twitter account or Facebook page or diary or life in general] with the happy*
So, I went ahead and freely stole it! Here are three things that are making me smile this week:
1. My father-in-law. He thinks I’m funny. I love that quality in a person! The truth of it is: he’s pretty funny too.
2. My dog, Rio. She’s a rescued dog of unknown pedigree. People are forever trying to guess what she is. (I feel for her because I know first hand how annoying this can be. If I had a buck for every time I’ve been asked “what are you?”…) Anyway, we adopted Rio from the SPCA in Grande Prairie, Alberta when she was a puppy, just five months old (approximately), and she was already tall and skinny and sporting a beard that would make any hipster envious. She is a sweet, funny, slightly loopy girl that’s been a part of our little family for more than five years now. She loves roadtrips, rawhide chews, her teddy-bear, playing ball at the beach, singing (although, I don’t think our neighbours love it when she sings), chasing squirrels, and many, many other things. She has a zest for life that is truly inspiring, as dogs often do.
3. My Wonder Woman socks. I believe the photo speaks for itself.
When it came right down to choosing three things I’m grateful for today, it was difficult to pick only three! The whole thing has made me realize that I have so much to be grateful for.
What are your three things?
