Thankful Things

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, 
earned, worn or consumed. 
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude." 
~ Denis Waitley

a. last weekend my hubby researched and took me on a private walking tour of Old Town before he took    me out for pancakes - clearly he knows the way to my heart
b. the Art Institute of Chicago is so magnificent and humongous you could spend a week there
c. sometimes I'll look out a window wherever we are and gasp at the beauty of this city
d. even though the temps have dropped, many of the flowers are still hanging on
e. after 7 days of searching at more than 10 shops, I finally got my hands on the domino special edition
f. it's always a blessing when I remember to look up
g. even after several years of living with him, our cat still cracks me up every day
h. with the constant traffic in this city, I'm so glad that I hardly EVER have to drive
i. it totally grabbed me and so I'm keeping this post short so I can get back to reading

What "minute" of this week brought you happiness?
