Simple Things

Every time I drop my son off at his day camp during the summer, I LOVE to see the sun reflecting off of the lake.

Beautiful, isn’t it??  This image prompted my post this morning.  It’s the simple things….the things that make you happy, the things that ground you….these simple things that seem to make it better and put it all in perspective.  They don’t always have to be a person or something tangible, but often times they are.  Of course, finding and appreciating the simplicity in life doesn’t negate the happiness I find from family and friends! My CUP runeth OVER!   
The “BUSYness” of life tends to cloud our thoughts and make us forget about the little things.  We tend to miss them because of distractions.   As a mother, I KNOW that I don’t do enough to appreciate the simple things my kids do/say/sing/create that make me BEAM with joy!  


 My morning picture challenges me to FIND the joy and CHOOSE to ENjoy the simple things…maybe in my surroundings, in my quiet times and moments, in myself (including the successes and failures) and in my faith.  

I think I might add a “Simple Things” comment at the end of my post (every now and then) to remind myself (and hopefully y’all too) to search and continue to seek out those simple things!

Tell me some of yours!
