    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...

    Having my 4 yr old tell me I made a delicious

    dinner. Makes my day. Even when it's a simple grilled cheese sandwich. He puts life in perspective for me and helps me see beauty and joy in everyday, simple things.

    Like going out for a walk around town

    or anywhere and greeting everyone with a smile because you never know how much a difference one small thing like a smile makes in someone's day. :)

    Life is made of moments.

    There no need to be at a fancy place to enjoy a good time along with your friends. Sometimes easy to forget the essentials, your friends, the moment you get to share with them. Thank you life and sorry because I forget this, very oftenly.

    So I lost my student ID card yesterday,

    and some kind soul found it and went to the trouble of emailing and hand-delivering it back to me!!! Have faith in humanity! :))) I am so extremely lucky that he found it.

    A nice hot bath at the end of the day.

    Cooking for loved ones. Finishing a really good book. Cleaning the kitchen. A really good garlic crusher. Getting phone calls instead of texts. When a dog runs up to you in the park. Hopping on my favourite bus route. When a Tshirt/jeans combo looks better than a smart outfit.

    Life is this world can be really beautiful.

    We don't stop and appreciate things very often. We are always rushing around. Not mindful of our surroundings and things. One morning I was off to a funeral far away from my home. My bro was driving thru North London when I saw a man fishing in a mini local lake. It was a...

    Simple things in life.

    Every morning when my husband kisses me goodbye

    before he leaves for work, we tell each other, "Be safe and be happy. I love you and I like you." It makes me smile every time. All the simple wishes we have for one another wrapped up in a tiny phrase.

    Times passes. When I open my eyes from sleeping,
