Pure n Simple Happiness

Is it just me, or do you like it when:

you don't have to be anywhere on crispy cool mornings and can lounge around in your pajamas as late as you want?

you have supper slowly cooking in the crockpot all day and know how relaxing the evening will be?

you plan all week for a fun and relaxing Saturday road trip?

the preaching and singing are both so wonderful that you don't want church to end, even if you're starving for lunch?

you catch a glimpse of your son(s) doing something just like your sweet hubby and looking like a younger version of him doing it? Of course this could also apply to a daughter.

the local evening news is hardly news at all, which means nothing bad happened anywhere around you today?

you've just got a new candle and can't wait to light it?

you have time to relax and watch a good chick flick without interruption? And can cry if you want to.

your family loves a new recipe you tried and begs you to start making it all the time?

you have time to let your hair dry naturally without having to blow dry it?

I could go on and on, but I just thought I'd list a few things off the top of my head that make me happy. Nothing here has anything to do with being rich, buying something expensive, having what friends and neighbors have, etc. I wouldn't want to sacrifice the simple things in life or anyone in my life, especially love and closeness for material things. Meaningful things and memories are so much better than material things.

  4. Your post about family and making a home welcoming are so true.
