Yesterday, I read two things that made my very happy. They were little things but I have learned to embrace those little things. They help you along in the "in-between" times. The first thing that made me smile is that there is nine days before pitchers and catchers are required to report to spring training. My boys of summer, the Red Sox, will be back on tv soon. I love baseball! If I wasn't such a ticket snob, I would probably make my way to Boston every weekend and try and make the game. It is one of my flaws, I need good seats whenever I am going to an event. If I don't have them, I would rather watch it on tv. This signifies that better weather WILL actually be coming. I didn't feel this way yesterday morning when I couldn't get my car out of the driveway because of all the ice. Ol' Bessie just didn't want to move, I had to take the husband's truck to work. This really isn't a hardship, he has the better vehicle with heated seats! Back to baseball, I love it! Everything about it! I just can't wait to see TC and the NESN gang with their coverage. I am so excited.
The other thing that made me smile yesterday was that NBC announced when Friday Night Lights final session was going to premier in April. I will finally be able to see my Tim Riggins back on tv. (Yes Amber, I said mine! We can duel it out at sunrise in 20 paces.) The man could certain turn me into a cougar any day!
I guess the point of this blog is that it doesn't only have to be big things that make us happy. Those big things don't come along every day. We need to embrace and recognize the smaller things that make us happy every day.
Later, I will be off having my taxes done. During my wait, I will think about all the little things that make me happy to pass the time.
