    Small But Beautiful

    In this so fast changing world, when happiness is defined by the possessions one has, certain "real" things have not lost their meaning. Two years back I was absorbed into this madness of life.. Never can i remember an occasion then when i have felt relaxed or had a hearty laugh...

    Beauty In Nature

    Every morning I take the same bus along the same route to school. I see the same weary, frazzled faces of overworked and mechanical people going about their monotonous routines, and it makes me feel less alive. The only solace? The bridge and the flowers and the greens. After...

    I Just Want Everyone To Be Happy

    I have a reflex against conflict... I would do anything just to see a smile on the faces of the people I love. I want to make you happy... I want to make you feel loved and satisfied.

    To me the little things he does are what bring

    me the most joy and the biggest smiles on my face. Who could ask for anyone better to have in their life? If he does that I believe he's a keeper for sure

    Little Things

    Like a little girl's smile, or the way a father holds his daughter's hand while she points at something in the store. Like the way the fresh food in the deli sits open and undisturbed. The way people do things for each other, like hold open a door or give away their napkins. The...

    “Are you going to buy everything?

    ” This is a question someone asked me when I went grocery shopping recently. The person asking me this was a girl about 3 or 4 years old. I was crouched down by the lower shelves on the condiment aisle, trying to decide what kind of salad dressing to get, when the adorable...

    The Little Things...

    The little things are the best sometimes, hugs, kisses, a baby's smile, cute little love notes, a warm conversation, a kitten, flowers, a song. I am easy to please I guess. :) I've been known to get excited about the smallest things.

    The old addage "You don't know what youve got till it's gone" is too true. When you have lost some of the things most everyday people take for granted you soon learn to appreciate some of the simplist things you never thought you would be so grateful for. I'm sure a...

    Feeling wind on your face.

    Feeling the sun on your back is one thing a biker knows. 360 degree of openness. The sound of the engine rumbles beneath you and you can still hear other things that do not sound the same. A tire rolling beside you from a car or maybe how their vehicle split’s the wind. It is...

    Little Tiny Things.. Just What I Needed...

    I had fun today..  and honestly, it's been quite a long time... Being away from home is very refreshing, though I miss my mom and my bed and those two little lizards in my room.. but it's kinda worth it, coz I spent half of my day chasing after a rabbit at my Aunt's backyard...

    I asked my little grandson to draw me a picture
