Look For Them...They are All Around

When we take time to notice the simple things in life, we never lack for encouragement....We can discover that we are surrounded by limitless hope every single day!

For me, the key to living a happy life is in knowing what matters most in life to us and living within our means...

I will tell you this....the simple pleasures in life is what helps me keep my sanity in check....

My new calendar has some great pictures and reminders for me to think about each month...."Cherish Life's Simple Pleasures."


Take my morning coffee for example.....I'm not sure if it's the coffee or the early morning hours of quietness!  You know, before the rush of the day takes over..  A simple pleasure....but one I look forward to each day!


Old Wash Tubs......


Life is good when you own several old wash tubs....A person can do so much with these things!!  Not only do they bring back great memories for me to think about, but they bring me great pleasure when I see beautiful flowers cascading from them...


And how about Flowers......


Flowers ..........Such simple pleasures to brighten any day!


Family.....


Oh Wow....I could never say enough about Family!
My family is truly my greatest pleasure in life.....


FAITH.....



I know, I know....some might would question as to whether or not FAITH is simple....
For me, it is!  It is a simple pleasure....Knowing that I serve a Mighty GOD, and knowing that He loves me and wants the best for me is all I need to enjoy this beautiful pleasure....


Nature......the spontaneous moments of seeing God's Beauty in our every day life....{Simple Pleasures}




LOVE....
The Bliss....The delight....The contentment of being in LOVE..
Being in Love and having someone to love you in return brings complete joy to my life....
