A Few Of My Favorite Things

27 Jul

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

I have some friends who are going through a bit of a rough patch. Whether it’s illness, death, the end of a relationship, the economy, loneliness – things have looked better, and yet they will again…

Here are some simple things that make me smile.

I hope that they can make you smile a little bit, too.

Thanks to  Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein for the song above.

    Seeing Froggy reminds me that one of my favorite things is fried frog legs.

      Thank you Doose – when I read your post I almost spit water out of my nose – not an easy or attractive thing to do.

      Froggy is in hiding.
