the simple life…

April 4, 2011

Today I am craving the simple…I’m wishing that these moments were all I had before me. Like when the suggestion to “raise your glasses” for a birthday toast invites the laughter when someone actually raises their eye glasses.

or…

The joy of cutting “J”‘s out of pepperoni to personalize the birthday pizza…

or…

Lucy pulling me out of a work fog with this little wisdom gem,

“I don’t think it’s good inside. You should come outside, can’t you feel the happy outside?”

…and who could refuse stopping for just a minute to pick a beautiful bouquet of weeds, and then leave them on neighborhood doorsteps?

And for just these small moments, I can forget the massive load I have taken on, the one that is weighing on my mind, the stack I am trying to push through, the one I can’t get seem to get on top off…

What simple joys call have a way of calling you, even in the thick of everything else? I’d love to hear them.
