The Simple Pleasures in Life


I’m not going to talk about how often we overlook the small moments of wonder in our busy lives, or how to stop and see them more often – that’s for another post.  I just want to mention a few simple pleasures that, if I pause to remember them, bring their joy into my life again.


The squish of sand between my toes.

The surprise of spring grass in the late summer, after a drought.

The softness of my one-month-old granddaughter’s hair.

The cheerful sound of my daughter’s voice.

Standing amongst my tomato plants, salt shaker in hand.

Watching a hummingbird hover outside my window.

Light at the flick of a switch.

A thick, soft towel, warm from the dryer.

The sound and feel of delightful words like sassafras and serendipitous.

The crackle of a warm fire on a bitter cold day.

The nicker of a horse, the touch of her velvety muzzle.

A bowl of mint ice cream, chocolate sauce, and fresh raspberries.

The way Hubby O’Mine’s eyes crinkle when he smiles.

What are the simple pleasures in your life?
