What warms your soul?

I found that question on one of the blogs I read regularly.  The blog is primarily about paper crafting, but Vicki also posts about what's going on in her life.  In addition to telling her readers what warms her soul, she included a link to THIS blog.  It's titled "kind over matter".  After I read Vicki's post, I followed the link...and found a fascinating blog.  After reading what warms my soul, I hope you'll follow the link and check it out.

These are some of the things that warm MY soul ~

the smell of rain in the summer  bird songs  stamping with my friends  the scent of laundry dried outdoors  a baby's giggle  long hugs from loved ones  seeing our nieces and nephews grow into wonderful young men and women  a good book and some quiet time  time alone  time spent with family  sister time  friends that pray for me  friends that ask for my prayers  home  visits with cousins that I don't see often enough  that feeling I get after I've done a thorough house cleaning  sunlight pouring into the house  sending a hand crafted card to someone I care about  receiving an unexpected card or letter  the "greening" of spring  seeing the bulbs I planted last fall grow and bloom this year  the scent of fresh cut grass  memories of my childhood  old photos  making new friends  talking about old times with old friends  laughter  compliments from my husband

And so much more...

What warms your soul?  I'd like to know.
