Small Joys…

The small joys in life

help keep things in perspective,

Even in hard times.

I would like to thank From a stranger to you for challenging me to find 15 small joys in my life. I just found her blog and I am so happy I did!!! I love her blog because it is positive and fun. Please go check it out. 🙂

The picture is of me and my husband after climbing Mt. Quandry, one of over 30 mountains in Colorado which is higher than 14,000 ft. We have summited 17 of them!!! 🙂

  1. My first three joys are not small to me at all. :). My husband – I am so incredibly grateful for his love and support. Best guy ever!!
  2. My children – I love them with all of my heart!!
  3. My grandchildren – The word legacy means so much more to me now that I have them in my life. They are precious.
  4. Flowers – Bright, beautiful and fragment.
  5. Coffee – I like a little coffee with my creamer every morning.
  6. Bird songs – I love the sound of bird songs filling the air.
  7. Walks – Fresh air and time for day dreams.
  8. Dogs – Fuzzy, lovable creatures.
  9. Cats – Fuzzy, lovable fur balls.
  10. Ice Cream – Wonderful, sweet and creamy.
  11. Reeces Peanut Butter Cups – I can’t think of a better taste combination than chocolate and peanut butter.
  12. Reeces Blizzard – So Ice cream and Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups are probably the best thing ever.
  13. The Mountains – I have loved them all my life.
  14. Hikes – They keep me young.
  15. Art – I love to paint, draw, write and take pictures.

The Inner Child Within Us…

May our inner child

Childhood…

My heart remembers

joyful wonders of seeing

things for the first time.

Nature’s Renewal…

Living is ongoing and developing.

Perhaps like a bud that unfolds,

Gloriously erupting into a full magnificent bloom.

Bright, vibrant colors bursting fourth

Into the air around,

Creating a magical mist of meaning.

And even as the beautiful petals fall,

Their wisdom seeps into the rich, bountiful Earth.

Which nourishes the souls of others.
