SMALL SIMPLE THINGS

Life has taught me that it is the small simple things we experience each day that bring us the most contentment.

A small pot of daffodils on the windowsill to chase away the winter blues.


Morning coffee with close friends. A time for laughter and sharing.

Short text messages with a grandchild to brighten a gloomy day.

Afternoon tea with homemade cornbread and a good book on my Kindle.

A short walk in the snow to share lunch with my mom.


Planning a potluck lunch for a snowy day.

Pulling out a vintage needlepoint project that has been hiding in the basket beside my chair for far too long and realizing how well it will go with my settee.


These aren't exciting things, but they are the simple things that make up my life. They are all things that enrich it.

I am grateful.

    1. Nothing better than a spot of tea and some cornbread with jam on a cold day.

  4. There is much joy to be had in the simple things if we would only open our eyes and hearts and truly see.

    Have a lovely day today ~ FlowerLady

  5. It is the simple things that make up our lives, not the big things. I say you're exactly right: savor the moments.

    1. I'm trying very hard to savor the moments, Brenda and I am learning to enjoy my own company more and more.

  6. I think you're perfectly right. Small things are very important. Even when I had a bad day, there's always a little thing that's going to make me smile.
