Today is a new day...to start enjoying the simple things....like the basket of fresh fruit and vegetables...the colors, textures, and shapes put lovingly away by your husband.

The smell of the roses in the vase on the table. The velvety petals, the softness...and the prickle of the thorn when you place them in the vase.

The smiles of friends who just moved into their new home...proudly and humbly preparing for their new adventure.

Its the garage sale items waiting patiently on the tables and ground for someone to adore them enough to take them home and give them a new place.

Its the warmth of the heater and the smell of fresh pastries baking in the oven while you settle in your favorite chair with a good book.

Its the friends and families photos in the frames surrounding you with their presence when they aren't there in person with their laughter and hugs.

Its the simple things in life that give me great pleasure....

How bout you? Can you add to this?

The scent of Green Tea bubble bath.

The comfort of my own bathroom, however humble.

The time spent as I wish, with my favorite music, my favorite snack, my computer and in my favorite pyjamas.

Eros Ramazzotti singing in Italian, some fresh pasta with fresh tomato sauce and garlic, candles and some red wine.

Writing my novel in the company of my characters.

The simple pleasure of logging onto the internet and finding friendships that are based on getting to know each other's hearts.

ahhh, how wonderful and simple all those things are. the laughter of children enjoying themselves. the lap of the ocean waves on the sand. the smell of newly washed clothes. the ocean wind blowing my hair.

those are some of the things that i take to my soul to nourish myself.

peace and love all

aw yes, the simple things

an azure blue sky

a hawk soaring high

soft kitten fur against my cheek

the smell of fresh brewed coffee

the color of green

a hug

an unexpected smile from a stranger

the simple things

life can be soooo beautiful when u take the time for it. drop everything and give your self to the beauty of the world. it isn't all ugly.

the intricasies of a rose. the velvet sofness of it. a weeping willow tree blowing in the breeze. the mother bird who has come to your simple birdhouse to have her babies. that first cup of coffee. good music.

the breathe u are able to take every morning.

find peace and comfort in the simple beautiful things in life.

Repeating the Serenity Prayer when you feel the need to prove yourself when it actuality...you didn't.

Taking a breath of fresh air and pausing and saying....How important is this

Keep it Simple.....

the scent of clean laundry neatly folded

homemade bread baking in the oven on a chilly day

flannel jammies and Cosmo after a bubble bath

standing tall in a new suit

an unexpected email from an old friend

a hug for no reason

waking up in the night after a bad dream, hearing hubby's soft snoring and purring from cat at foot of bed, drifting off to sleep again

comfy website with unseen friends to support on a bad day!

What a beautiful thread !

mj,

We were on the sea itself (a 30 second walk from the hotel, just a few steps down). The sea in Greece is the best (deep-deep blue, warm and calm, silence and an occasional white sailing ship leaving a white trail of foam in utter silence. Paradise. You HAAAVEE to go there !

If you haven't seen the movie "Shirley Valentine" yet, I think you'll just love it (about a woman who escapes to romantic Greece and her husband stops taking her for granted as a result). Lovely movie, full of Greece lovely scenery and romantic sunsets a-deux. Instant mood booster !

A Gentle Breeze

A hug from your grandchild.

Flowers just because

The ability to walk, talk, see and hear.

To have Family around you when you need them and even when you dont need them.

The Internet and meeting all of you.
