The Simple Things

Christina and her family are graciously giving a dollar for every list of simple things in life shared. The money will go towards Doctors without Borders. It's a wonderful contribution to not only the people in Haiti but others who have medical needs but can't afford to seek the necessary care. Please go over to Christina's blog and enter your blog name and do this!! You won't regret it.

Simple Things in Life

Smelling freshly washed clothes

Listening to the wind howl outside and knowing that I'm warm and indoors.

Bananas and peanut butter

Being lost in Boo's gorgeous green eyes

Holding hands to pray before we eat our meals

Being completely healthy without any asthma attacks since I am without medical insurance.

A glass of wine and one of my favorite chick flicks

Doodling on paper

Watching the orange glow of the sun going down

Making my dad laugh when I say something funny

Baby Boo's hand in my hand

Watching Grey's Anatomy and calling my twin sister on every tv commercial to commentate on the episode.

Warm, soft footsies.

Hearing the words, "I love you"

Birds singing and the burst of colors in the spring time

Clouds, fluffy, white clouds.

Finding a bargain at the thrift store.

I'm blessed in so many ways by the simple things in my life. No matter how tough January has been for me, I am always reminded of the great things that I have to look forward to each day.

I love your list, Simone. :)

Freshly washed clothes... especially if they have been dried on a clothesline in the sun! I can't remember when I last smelled that.

Jill said...

How are you?? I have missed you and reading all your posts.
I am trying to be back to this full time but I have to get my heart in the right place. The last few lines of this post said it all.
I am too blessed. I have to hold onto what is great in my life and push everything else to the side.
Glad to be back. Hope to hear from you soon!

I, too, love that brief pause, the silence after we've held hands but before we begin to pray. Isn't this idea of Christina's such fun? I love how many of us are roaming the blogroads stopping to say hello here and there. So, hello to you. Happy almost-Friday.
