"SIMPLE THINGS - FOR
Enchanted Oak is doing a Simple Things Challenge this weekend. Post about simple things you cherish, link back to her blog, and leave a comment so she knows you have posted about simple things. For each post or comment on her blog $2 will be donated to a medical clinic in Haiti.
It brought a very simple pleasure to spend time reflecting on simple things that please me. The more I thought about it, the more I found.
Wind or even breezes and I have something very special going on. I always experience these movements of air as something very spiritual. Wind has a way of speaking to the deepest part of my soul. I just love it.
I am also totally in love with meadows - all meadows, but especially ones full of brightly colored flowers. Many years ago, I wrote my favorite poem about a meadow filled with a riot of color. Simple, but beautiful.
I appreciate experiencing the birth of a new day as I sit on my porch. It begins with grays and a damp coolness in the air. Very soon, the sun creeps into the backyard then gradually into the porch and the moisture in the air begins to lift. The air is fresh and clear and clean. Simple and exquisite.
How wonderful it is to be caressed by a breeze, touched on the cheek, and kissed by my husband - all in the same moment.
How perfect is that first morning taste of my home brewed espresso with a splash of sweet half and half. Nothing could be better than this very simple wake-up call.
Walking into an Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon meeting and receiving a loving, welcoming smile from my sponsor, a sponsee, or other friend is a simple, but glorious thing.
There are so many more, but I want to keep this a simple list.
