Simple Things


raindrops on the window pane
birds splashing in water
streams of light through curtains
little hands on my face

warm socks on cool nights
smell of fresh baked bread
coffee with half & half
my favorite mug

listening to the kids singing in the next room
laughing at each others' jokes
overhearing hopes and dreams
smiles of satisfaction

call from my best friend
card in the mail
surprise text message
love letter email

freshly made up bed
fluffy pillow
stack of books on night stand
great article in magazine

my bad hair day hat
favorite black boots
hoop earrings
watch from my dad

my son whispering my name
watching my girls play mommy
hearing them breathe as they sleep
quiet house

kettle whistling
warm biscuits and jelly
creamy grits
time to savor the early morning silence

coloring
painting
looking through photo albums
laughing again at an old joke

holding hands
hugging
nice back scratch
rubbing of feet & toes

incense burning
shea butter to rub in my hands
lavender
lemongrass

having time to journal
my favorite silver pen
feeling the words being written
rereading where I've been

walking in nature
leaning against a tree
seeing a new flower
walking through a creek

sunflowers
dandelions
dogwoods
magnolia trees

sunny days
autumn
cool nights
snow

This is such a fabulous list that I can't choose just one or two things I like because I love them all!! The photograph you used is like a dream!
