A list of the good things is opened!

Well, I thought to put up topic like this... An idea is that we think everything which is good, positive and enjoyable and then list them. I want to see how long is the final list we've compiled.

Please count earlier suggestions in your message and add your suggestion(s) after them.

Let me start:

1. Taking a warm bath.
2. A cup of hot chocolate.
3. A cold night in winter when you're sitting in the front of a fireplace and looking a snowstorm outside of a window.
4. When someone are smiling to you.
5. Eating sweeties and chips.
6. A feeling of success when you've solved a knotty math exercise or got on with a difficult horse.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Pelle Miljoona - Varjo seuraa onneain
