1. My 7 month old son who gave me his first kiss this morning.

2. The pink cheeks and curly black hair of my sleeping 4 year old daughter.

3. The worn patina of my husbands wedding band on his big paw as it rises and falls with his breathing while he sleeps.


1. Bengal Spice tea
2. Bird songs in the morning, preferably a Saturday morning when hubby and I can snuggle in bed.
3. Watching movies with my boys.

Marcia Francois

1. Curling up with a good book in lovely cold weather with a nice hot mug of tea
2. When I'm helping someone discover their passion and they GET IT - there is nothing like that feeling of pure joy
3. The smell of bread


1. Working at the ceramic studio where I rent space to make art! (I finally made a commitment to feed my inner artist!)

2. Hearing my teenage daughter tell me that I'm doing a really good job being a mom!

3. The excitement of looking at colleges for my daughter, and finding one that makes her heart sing!


1. Seeing the sun filter through the mini-blinds as I wake up naturally at 5:40 this morning.

2. The sounds of birds outside my window in the still as I write drinking a cup of hot tea.

3. Watching the green shoots rise up from the soil where they were planted 10 days ago and admiring how life goes on. :-)


1. Hearing my children laugh.
2. Watching my husband and boys wrestling on the floor - my 18 month old always seems to win!
3. Colour - anything vibrant makes my heart sing.


Here's my top three:

1) Listening to music
2) Singing
3) A walk in the countryside

Paula Manning-Lewis

1. Sunday mornings sitting in bed, drinking coffee and talking about future dreams with my husband.
2. Putting the finishing touches on a new painting and feeling that sense of accomplishment for a job well done.
3. Getting hugs from my teenage sons without having to ask!
