Topic of the Week

Tiny Treats


I’m just getting back (late last night) from a trip to Italy with Michael.  It was our first real vacation since his illness and we had an amazing time.  I need to digest the experience, so, while I do, I thought I’d share a little wisdom from our Facebook community.  Before I left, I invited people to offer their favorite little treats – the simple things that make life enjoyable on a daily basis.  We had lots of great ideas.  Take a look at some of them and add something new to your daily repertoire this week!  

Long showers

A great cup of tea

Greek yogurt with walnuts and raspberries

Evening baths

Time to be creative, just for the sheer fun of it

An afternoon nap

Water or juice in a wine glass

A coffee date with a friend


An appointment at a swanky hair salon

Giving myself time to scrapbook

Buying a little bunch of flowers while food shopping

A book from the library

Cuddle time with our Chihuahua

Watching a great movie on the couch with a loved one

Treating myself to a pedicure

Reading a great mystery or suspense novel

A couple of Hershey Kisses every day

Cooking with someone I love

Snuggling my husband before I get up in the morning

Washing my wedding ring until it sparkles

Walking in my garden to see what’s changed

Singing from the top of my lungs in the car

How about you?  Any favorite little treats you’d like to share?  Visit our Facebook page here and do tell ☺.

This week’s video has been sent to me by a variety of people from around the world.  It’s Dr. Emoto’s prayer for water in the gulf (and surrounding areas) and you can find it here.
