Simple Things

Posted by Picasa
Christina at Soul Aperature is celebrating with Simple Things this week. Simple things mean alot. I am reading Gifts from the Sea once more today and reminded of our desire to live simply.
Here are a few of the Simple Things that bring me Delight ~
Singing Happy Birthday
Butterflies flitting on the flowers
A red tomato on the vine
Warm water running over my head in the shower
A warm cup of my favorite tea
Passion fruit macaron
One piece of my favorite chocolate
Someone calling to say they were thinking of me
A warm fire on a cold night
A bird's song
Giving of a gift for no reason at all
The first daffodil of the spring
Twinkling lights
Fireworks
Touching soft, silkened fabrics, wood, or ceramics
A pretty cup
You

What a lovely photo. Thank you for your list and for reminding me of the many simple things in my life that bring delight.

I have never read Anne Lindberg's book, but would like to one day.
