    The Simplicity

    Everything that is forced tires the body and soul together. Spontaneity is good and the simple things are the most beautiful in the world. They have no contraindications. Being natural is to seize the opportunities that life gives us by presenting someone with good times or...

    It doesn't take much to please me.

    It's the little things I enjoy. Cuddling up and watching a good movie with the hubby.

    Small Packages

    Some of the best things really do come in small packages, or no packaging at all. A few of the "small moments" I cherish in my life: 1.) A child's "secret" whispered into my ear 2.) Little hands holding onto mine 3.) Belly laughs until you're crying, peeing, or both 4...

    Kite Flying

    Watching a kite sailing in the wind is very relaxing to me. I wanted to share this youtube clip. The guy flying the 3 kites is in his 80s, and he's from Canada. He comes to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year. His skin is like leather as he normally...

    Being Gentle With Feeling

    I have said for many many years. Give me the little things. I still feel today for little things. I don't require a lot just sincere heartfelt in all you do. Can't you take just a moment, to listen patiently. Can't you just hug and kiss me. Can't you just take my hand and tell me...

    An Hour Of Pure Bliss

    I would rather not call them small moments, but the time I spend meditating is truly special to me. It feels like the serenity of early mornings is answering all my questions . It is that time of the day when I can feel oneness of the universe and all else seem so trivial and...

    You're Beautiful...

    Even though we all may travel down the "If Only" path, it is the combination of the small moments that should embed themselves in our memories. I just love this song as it seems to depict just how two people should feel regardless of the "if only if" moments people sometimes want...

    Spirit Flow

    When I'm laughing so hard I can't breath

    and I'm crying because my friends made me laugh!! Or the moment when I finish a book and all I can think about is if there is another one. The moments that are small but totally unforgettable! I love them and I wouldn't give them up for the world:)

    Soap Bubble Moments

    This is my name for the small moments that pass us by all too quickly. They are fleeting, only lasting a short time, and then "poof" they are gone.. Just like a soap bubble. Doesn't make them any less special or incredible. Makes them more so because you know that you at least...
