I Appreciate the Simple Things In Life

    Got a group of coworkers to stay

    after work tonight and take advantage of the free ice(ice arena). Other than a few, nobody had previously experienced the rink party. So, now it sounds like they plan on making it a "thing" at least twice a month. I just love the fact I planned it and it'll be one of those...

    Since I've already revealed some pretty sad

    things in my life, I wanted to take the opportunity to share the simple things I love and what make me happy. I'm a huge horror fan, I love reading and listening to horror stories. I have a Shar-Pei puppy called Harvey, he's so beautiful! I love my little man. Dogs are such...

    “1. Sleep naked. If it’s warm outside,

    open the windows and draw the curtains. You’ll wake up with beams of sunrise on your skin, under cool sheets. 2. Play soccer barefoot. You will feel more free and happy while you savor the moment. Everyone is more arrogant in shoes. 3. Dance to your favorite music. 4. Wear a...

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    Like the Sunset. It's always there

    but whenever i see it i felt so good. I love the sight and the feelings that it is giving me. I am starting to be a fan of its greatness by taking a lot of pictures of its beauty. :)

    All I want at the moment is a hug.

    Usual I'm not the hugging type and it's awkward when people try to hug me. It's not that I don't like hugs, I just don't like forced hugs. I've just been feeling sick all day, I have so much on my mind and the weather has just been grey. A nice warm long hug from someone big...

    We come here time and again (yes,

    Times passes. When I open my eyes from sleeping,

    The sun is shining but the wind is wild today.

    Keeping me from the wetting my toes at the beach. Behind the shield of glass, howling wing and a symphony of white tops and waves crashing, rising sprays and roaring surf against the little cliffs is spectacular to watch from upstairs.

    I'm so delighted of what I got this morning.

    The driver of my boss handed me a white envelope. When I opened it, a check amounting to 50,000 pesos ($ 1,142). There's a note attached to the check saying." To: MY SISTER & PARTNER, ENJOY SHOPPING... Thank you LORD for the blessing!!

    No matter how small they are they show us the

    good side of us. To help somebody, to laught with him or spend a few moments time with him. Those are the moments then we feel as humans and that we are all are humans in the end. Nop matter skin colour, nationality or religion.
