My favorite things ...

Riding into work this morning, Luther Vandross' rendition of "My Favorite Things" was playing on the radio. It's one of my favorite versions of the song. It's Luther. As comedians often say ... he could sing the phone book and I'd listen. But it got me to thinking about things that make me smile -- my favorite things. By the time I got to work, I was in a great mood! Why? Because of my favorite things ...
  • Preston's laugh
  • Mark's singing voice
  • Hershey's Kisses
  • Aunt Peggy's mac and cheese
  • Aunt Betty's turkey and dressing
  • A gospel choir that "sangs"!
  • Ladybugs
  • A good book (the kind that makes you feel like you've lost a good friend when you're done reading)
  • Autumn leaves
  • Clear Christmas lights
  • Hot cocoa on a cold morning or evening
  • Hot McDonald's french fries
  • Black leather boots (with at least a 3-inch heel, of course)
  • The Color Purple (book and movie)
  • Prince singing Adore live (I've been lucky enough to see that twice)
  • People magazine

Now that you know some of my favorite things, I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with your favorite things.
