The Simple Things ARE the Things

A toasty bagel oozing cream cheese

A crinkly wrapper compressed solidly in your fist

Sun light streaming

Fears, panic, stress receding

From a simple soul baring followed by an authentic affirmation

The joy and light of crisp fall leaves all around me

Radiance enters my soul and sings

    Enjoying the “simple” things of life is truly wonderful. Like this very much.

    So true! A beautiful meditation on savoring the little things, which of course are the most precious, wonderful things that make up our lives!! I absolutely love this…and by the way, I love the title of your blog too 😍

      Thank you, Barbara! I find in motherhood especially we make things more difficult by not focusing on the simply sublime. And thank you for understanding the ‘chopping’ metaphor 🙂
