(quote) Kathy-730470 said: I was wondering in the process of trying to live your life right and being thankful everyday for the blessings you have what are the simple things that bring joy? A friend of mine said that drinking tea out of china cups makes her smile. There are many for me. I love seeing children smile, reading a book, watching a funny movie, talking with a friend, spending time with family etc. What are the simple things that bring you joy and make you smile?
The sun shining into my living room and kitchen when I get up in the mornings. . . my kids and sibs are always after me to put up curtains or blinds and I refuse. I have no neighbor beside me and none behind me and a large privacy fence, but I love, love, love coming down the hall and stepping into the sunlight, beautiful.
The deep and hearty laugh of men.
The sweet, delighted belly laugh of babies and little children.
The wonder on the face of a wee one, just exploring their world.
Getting lost in a good book, curled up with a soft blanket and a pillow :-).
Just being with friends and family on the patio, laughing, talking, telling stories and jokes, remembering. . .that brings me joy.
