Simple Joys

Sometimes we get so caught up in our every day lives and the hustle and bustle that sometimes we miss out on some of the most simple joys right in front of us.  I know I do. 

This afternoon has been a relaxed hurry to do anything or get somewhere.  I enjoyed a small nap after church and just watching and listening to the rain on our back porch.  When I looked around, there were such wonderful simple things surrounding me.  And it was really nice to be still and quiet for a while just taking in those simple things that bring joy if we just take time to notice.

Some sweet little purple petunias {that I need to get in a pot} that one of my students gave me on the last day of school.

  Birch trees that we wish we had more of in the backyard.  They are such cool trees!

A yummy birthday cake milkshake from Zaxby's {that I just finally tried recently}.  Yum-O!  Sooooo perfect on a hot day like this afternoon!

And my most special little shadow...who was lying on the floor by my feet when I was on the back porch, and then in her chair when we came indoors.

Next time when you are quiet and still, look around and see all of the simple joys that surround you.

Many simple blessings,
