    I love the feeling of coming home

    after a shopping trip with all of the new things I bought. It's worth it to spend a little on the things that make you happy. Just wearing that new shirt out in public or running in those new tennis shoes makes me feel more confident. Life is too short not to enjoy the little...

    Today... would have been a great day

    for a picnic. Just a friendly face across a white and red checkered blanket, small bottle of sweet red wine (just enough for a glass each) and something to nibble on. Under some tree thats been standing there for what seems ages and a cool breeze flicking little strands of hair...

    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!!

    My wife and our two cats,

    plus we have mallards that come to eat in our back yard. They say we have a river otter in the cannel, which runs from Lebanon to Albany. There are Hawks and Eagles off and on thru out the year.

    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...

    Sometimes it's best to accept

    and apreciate the simple things in life. At the end of the day it's the simple things like love and laughter that matters and not lavish things like wealth and power!

    Feeling rested. Today feels like a better day,

    the sun is shining and autumn is in the air. Not sure if it goes back to school term times or maybe uni but sometimes, I think this time of year is like the start of a new year !

    I am vacationing at the beach,

    a very familiar place. I come here often with my family. Our daily ritual is to brew a pot of coffee, pour into two clear glass mugs; mine is black, his with a little cream and sugar. We head out the door and make our walk to the beach - not far, a few houses away. I love the...

    Walking along the beach.

    Hiking. Taking in a beautiful fall day with a friend. Being able to just appreciate the natural beauty the world has to offer and in good company. Today has been a day of simple pleasures and has made me very happy. I love days like today :)

    for who you are and where you are today. Don't wish to be anyone else but yourself. You can be terribly surprised to learn about another person's life.

    The simplest most expensive things in my life

    they I am most grateful for are the hugs, kisses, punches, laughs, tickles and yes even silly bites that I receive from my three children. It does not get any better than this

    I think the best moments in life are not

    planned. When I close my eyes, feel the wind play with my hair, and forget about all the worries.. Or when I sit on the rooftop and look at the stars, or the beautiful sunset. It's just so magical. I'm not sure if it counts as simple, but at least it makes me happy.

    I love life in general.

    Sunsets, sunrise, rain, good friends and family. I have plenty of wealth, no not money, the free things in life and my favorite is smiling at someone and them smiling back. If they don't respond, I hope I made their day a little better.
