Little things

Thursday, May 02, 2013

My husband and I enjoy such simple things in life now. We are way past the stage where we have to be entertained. We can do a walk around our place or do some exercise with free weights or we can get a lot of exercise working in our garden. We have been many places over our lifetimes and enjoyed everywhere we have been but we get the most joy out of staying home and enjoying our little "farm". We get joy from watching our garden grow or our seeing the fruit grow and ripen on our fruit trees. We enjoy watching the flowers unfold and put on their show. We enjoy pitching a ball for our dogs to fetch and basically we enjoy the simple life. Our sons are grown and have families of their own now and we enjoy visiting with them. We enjoy helping out our neighbors and attending church on Sundays. These may seem simple and small things but we are so blest by them. So always enjoy the path you walk and smell the flowers along the way.

    What a wonderfully contented life you all seem to lead. I envy you your little patch of heaven right here on earth. But me and DH continue to look for ours and will find it eventually and then I hope we are 1/10 as content as you and Sonny seem to be.

Little blessings are really the best after all.

    We start life with nothing and leave it the same way. naked and nothing. What we choose to do with what we are given in-between, is the key to happiness! Memories are great for sitting in our yard, reflecting, smiling and savoring.....
