I'm a little late listing these (others did this weeks ago), but I've sort of been saving them for one of those days when I'm on the run and don't have much time to think about a thoughtful blog entry!
Ten+ sounds that gladden my heart:
~Babies when they’re first discovering that they can make expressive sound with inflection
~“you’ve got mail!”
~The gurgle of the coffee pot when it’s finished its brew cycle
~A train’s whistle in the distance
~Junior’s ring on the cell phone
Disclaimer: I didn’t take this picture (it was shot by my friend Jayne), or the one of the bells, which I downloaded from google.
