I Believe In

You know I found a fun interview with Audrey Hepburn the other day and as I was reading through it I came across this quote from her:

” I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

It got me thinking of the simple things that bring us joy.  So, just for fun, I decided to compile my own Audrey-type  list.  What is on yours?


Laughing so hard that you pee your pants
Pink hair
Santa Clause and the magic of Christmas
Dancing without insecurity or careOn a swing
That swinging can erase all of life’s troubles
That all people are inherently good, decent and kind
That every day brings a new opportunity for joy
That there is magic in even the smallest things
That love is the answer to everything

    Jennie —

    We must come from the same block of faith. Except for the swinging part, that makes me dizzy. But I’ll push?

    The toothfairy visited our house recently and had something to say to my 8 yr old about believing in things. I think you might like it. Check it out.

    Your list made me feel all happy. One of my absolute favorite things to do is to swing with one of my boys on my lap. (the small offspring kind, not the grown man kind) :)
