Simple Things

Simple things that make my heart sing
Candles in the rain
The first blossoms of the year even before Spring
Joey's pink nose
Daffodils peeking out of the ground
A kittie's purr
My hands wrapped around a warm cup of tea
Chocolate, all kinds
The smell of sheets dried outside
French Macarons
A song of joy on the radio
A card in the mail
A bouquet of roses
Walking barefoot in the sand
Listening to a rippling brook
Blue skies and puffy white clouds
A smile just because
A friend stopping to say hello
Flying through the sky in a swing
A good book
Crawling into a warm, comfy bed each night
Tender hearts that answer the call the help

Hello, Marilyn. I am visiting you in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your thoughtful list. Candles in the rain. What a lovely image!

Good morning, my friend -
I love your list and I found myself smiling as I read - and identifying with each one. Loved see Joey again. Stopped by to visit Christina and leave a comment. I enjoyed her blog. Thank you for sharing her with us. I'm sitting with grandkids until sometime this afternoon. When I get home I'm going to sit and enjoy my Joey and have a good cup of tea. Have a place in Canby I'd love to take you to see - all kinds of teas and tea-related things. In the pharmacy gift shop. Always a pot of tea for tasting so I'm learning to enjoy several and love talking to the gal in charge. She loves and knows teas and tearooms!

I love the smell of wind dried sheets...I ahve not had a clothes line for a few years and miss it so much.

Sorry I am arriving late to read your lovely "Sinple Things" list.
