Life's Simple Joys

"Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life."-Marcus Aurelis

Hi friends. I'm reminded today of the very great joy and privilege it is to be alive. I'm saying thanks for being able to swing my legs over the side of my bed and greet a new day. And I'm grateful for all the simple pleasures that it will hold. 

The first cup of coffee, my daily bread, the scent of late summer roses in my own backyard... all the tiny miracles that add up to a happy life. 

What are you thankful for today?

  1. We are so fortunate to be sure Jeanne. I'm thankful mr. Splendid has made it over to enjoy this adventure with me. Also, I thought you'd appreciate this, on the ride from the airport he offered that he had eaten one of the tomatoes from our vines and that it was incredible. I'm thankful my tomatoes didn't go to waste! Xo

  2. Well said! Grateful for health and happiness, family and the chance to make today any kind of day I want it to be!

    Your gratitude is so uplifting. It is the little things in life that really make a difference. I am presently grateful to be in Ireland, the land of my birth and youth and visiting family
