I felt that Friday needed a very happy post, so here are nine pick-me-ups. They work on me every time:
1. The Daisy.
“I love daisies! . . . They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?”
-Kathleen Kelly, You’ve Got Mail
2. Coffee and Chocolate.
Coffee makes us severe, and grave, and philosophical.~Jonathan Swift
3. Orange: the color and the fruit.
5. Happy memories.
6. The Sea.
“Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
7. Good friends.
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
― C.S. Lewis
“His heart danced upon her movements like a cork upon a tide. He heard what her eyes said to him from beneath their cowl and knew that in some dim past, whether in life or revery, he had heard their tale before.”
― James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
