These are the simple pleasures that came to mind today that I am grateful for and that make me a happier person:

1) The very first run in a brand-new pair of running shoes is so light and cushion-y, it makes me feel as if I’m running on clouds.

2) The last bite of semi-melted ice cream at the bottom of an ice cream cone is a little taste of heaven.

3) Spotting a rainbow in the sky after a storm makes all of the clouds, rain, and thunder so worth the wait.

4) The sound of a child’s laugh is enough to make even the most serious person smile.
