If you want to know what Feel Good Friday is all about zip on over to The Girl Next Door Grows Up . It truly makes you feel good just by participating in this.

This has been another one of those weeks where there have been some ups and downs. Some days the bad tried to outweigh the good but I fought it off.

My brother was texting me from Hawaii, as he was sitting on the beach, kicking back and was talking about Mom and that really made me start to miss her more this week. I already miss her a bunch, but when she is brought up in conversation the pain seems to get worse.

But there are things that made me smile, lots of things actually.

~ New friends. It is great to be able to converse with other Moms (and even Dads) that are going through some of the same ups and downs that you are.

~ Reading others blogs have made me smile. Some of your posts really crack me up, and I can hear myself laugh out loud while I am reading them.

~ Sheets hung out on the line. How can these not make you feel good? Freshly laundered and hung out in the spring air, they smell so great when you put them on the bed and crawl into them.

~ Warm socks on a cool morning. It was about 20 degrees out this morning when we got up. Nothing worse (and can cause you to wake up immediately) then having your warm feet hit a cold kitchen floor.

~ The little one learning how to do somersaults, which is her new favorite thing to do. She was doing them on the bed the other night and giggling. She had tried numerous times before but wasn't able to push her butt up and over. She did one on the living room floor yesterday (before I could stop her), and I think she knew it was a mistake long before she flopped over.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful day.

Sheets hung out on a line to dry! Yes! Nothing better! It's been so long since I've had that experience, and you just brought back so many wonderful memories for me--thank you!

Great top 5! My daughter is obsessed with somersaults too, except it's currently more of a fall over to the side sault. ;) Either way, it's adorable!

Have a great weekend!!

My 2 yr old daughter loves to be on her head as well. She gets stuck. Then i worry she is going to hurt herself. I suck the fun out of gymnastics totally! Just ask my oldest!
