Yeah, cheesy. I do like that song though. I think in life we are always focusing on the bad things. I'm sure you can list a few things right now that drive you crazy. What are a few of your favorite things though? What makes you smile or laugh? Mine: A baby laughing my husbands smile when he comes home from work eating at the dinner table..instead of the couch playing in a creek hiking the moment you see the person who is picking you up from the airport.

I for sure have to agree with all the above =) The moment when u see the person picking u up from the airport after beeing gone is a great happy moment. One other thing that also makes me happy is seeing an old man and woman walking hand in hand or kissing. That just always puts a smile on my face =)

Good topic! There is enough griping and complaining in the world -- I'd rather be grateful for the good stuff! Here are some of my favorites: * waking up to the smell of cinnamon rolls and coffee * playing with my grandbabies * snuggling up on my husband's shoulder * a cool rain after a hot day * finding rock star parking in a crowded lot * rubbing my dog's belly * a fresh snowfall * chocolate * weekends * seeing that the scale didn't notice the cinnamon rolls and chocolate!! *

There are many things that put a smile on my face... a child's laughter, a dog's head cocked to the side as he looks at you as if to say "Huh?", the way my wife bats her eyes as she looks up at me when I hold her in my arms. The list is endless... and yet there is one that comes to me before all others... when my sons hug their dad.

my boys laughing together, my friends who are there for me, my husband making me laugh, when it rains, thinking about my baby growing inside of me.

My partners. Good food. Hanging out with my friends. Travelling. My gf made up a version of the song to cheer me up when I was really depressed. It was all about gargoyles and black clothes. It was great.

What a wonderful topic! . . It's nice to be able to concentrate on the positive for once instead of just the negative! . . The things that make me smile, as well as laugh are the following things:- My other half's laughter & the quiet moments we share together. - Puppy kisses from our very own - Compliments from a stranger make me smile - Watching children play - Amazing people with amazing hearts, who are true to you, but also themselves - Kindness makes me smile - Old 80's movies that help to bring me back to my childhood. Make me feel like a kid all over again. - The amount of love/support I receive from my other half each & every day. He's the one person who's always been there, who's always been true. - A BBQ on a nice warm sunny day with the people whom you care for. - Breakfast in bed - Sleeping in.. And then once you have woken up you feel so well rested. - When I am able to help someone who sometimes is unable to help themselves. - Baking/cooking. Seeing how happy it makes people once they have a taste. - Watching our dog, running in the yard, rolling on her back with a toy/treat in her paws as she kicks her legs slowly, the way she gets so hyper sometimes.. Everything she seems to do either makes me laugh, or brings a smile to my face! . . - The sweet gestures sometimes that people offer others. - The rain.. Dancing in it, being in it, the smell it gives off afterwards. Everything smells so fresh! . . - Old couples walking holding hands. - When I purchase something for someone that they've always wanted, always desired. I love how there faces light up, it is highly contagious! - Good books on an overcast day - I love when your able to be yourself around someone else - Flaws & all. And they still accept you no matter what. - When someone supports me, & stands by me when I have to face a few obstacles a long the way. When I have to face emotional troubles. There is so many things I could name as . . Laughing & smiling are the things that I live for.. Because sometimes every frown one may be experiencing can always be turned upside down! . .

What makes me smile and/or laugh: Other people laughing. This always gets me. I almost can't help at least smiling if _anyone_ else around me is laughing, and usually it also makes me laugh. (Unless someone is laughing in a cruel way. That's just sad :/ ) Making other people happy. That is my greatest joy in life right now. If I can even bring a smile to someone else's face, it truly makes my day. Hearing other people sing around me. I love hanging around theatre people because it seems like they're always singing. I love to sing, as well ^_^ Getting to really talk to a good friend. Little is as refreshing as that is for me. I'm sure that there are many more, but this is what popped into my mind immediately ^_^

when i see my kids smile at me, when i see my kids happy, when my kids make funny faces or gestures, when my husband and i share stories, when i spend time with my family, when the day ends and i know that i accomplished a lot for that day, when i wake up in the morning and see that i am given another chance to live another day in my life, when i wake up in the morning and see my kids and husband, and when things are going well during the day.
