    You don't appreciate the simple things in life

    when reality gets in the way. You can't really appreciate having lunch under a large oak tree with your best friends, sun shinning through the lush leaves and the gentle wind caressing your face. But the moment you can appreciate these moments, it is pure bliss...

    The Simple Things Are the Best Things...

    Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair watching the day go by, a smile, a hug, a cuddle, keeping the fireplace glowing, cup of coffee in the morning, reading a good book, spending time with good friends, stopping to have a chat with someone you have never met nor will...

    I have 5 wonderful children.. We are planning out our summer and I am so excited.. yesterday we went and watched hot air balloons. I took LOTS of pictures. It was free to go but so much fun to watch them fill the balloons and take off. The sunburn and being tired are worth it for...

    Sometimes, when out for a walk,

    I just stop and look around. I can see green leaves and peeling birch trees. There goes a Jack Rabbit. I inhale and exhale and marvel at the process. I am alive. That is a simple pleasure that would really be missed.

    Because Being Happy Is Simple

    I always love the time that I spend with my family or when I can laugh with my friends. I love the night when I just lie on my bed and doesn't have to worry about anything. I like walking home. I love the smell of grass in the morning, or the smell of a new book. I'm healthy, i...

    Am I Easy Or Just Easy-going?

    It doesn't take much to bring a smile on my face. Kind words, nice gestures, a day just chatting with family, or watching network television with family. Even a smile on a baby's face is enough to warm me for a long while. And the silly antics of my kittens and cats. :-) I also...

    The slow parts of life.

    . Like driving, or folding clothes, watering gardens, saying hello - they climb to the climax of life. Simple and slow.. That's all I want.

    He Drives Me Crazy

    One simple pleasure I enjoy is having neat

    organized space with little obstacles. Because I currently live in an apartment away from home and for some reason brought tons of junk I'll never need, do you think it's a good idea to store all my things I don't need into a giant plastic bin and store it in my parents attic?

    I used to have a goldfish when I was a kid, one of those kinds you get at the carnival.  He lasted for about a month before he died.  When he started just lingering at the bottom of the bowl I would stick his food on the bottom of a stick and put it down there for him...

    Being with my family.

    Reading a nice book, drink a warm cup of tea. Walking home. Being alone in my room in the night. Sleeping when it's raining.

    The Best

    The simple pleasures in life are the best. Enjoying company of a close friend, watching the animals outside. Hot chocolate in winter. Camping in the woods alone, cooking over the fire. Going for a walk at night in the fall.

    So Many

    Most of the things I enjoy are fairly simple, but as a teacher I get the opportunity to experience them daily.  I love when it's spring, and the kids will bring me little bouquets of wild flowers when they're out at recess.  They pick little tiny flowers and are so...

    It Really Is The Little Things

    It seems to me that more 'conveniences' we invent to make our lives proceed more smoothly, the more complicated things become. Our lives have become overwhelmed with Immediacy. As workers we race to our places of employment, so drawn to the 'need' to be everywhere we 'need' to be...

    Keeping It Simple

    I'm among those who strongly believe that the small things in life matter the most; for example, watching the night sky.

    I Smile When I Get Caught...

    ... looking at a woman I find attractive. I love when at that moment of being caught to not turn away but to smile innocently, after all in my mind I just gave her a complement. & if she returns the smile? Ahhhhh that, is, such a simple pleasure

    Low Maintenance

    Though people usually just think of me as simple.  I want a lot of things, but don't need to be rich, famous, or rule the world. Coffee, walking in the rain, playing, cooking, reading, a surprise e-mail, and the list goes on ad nauseum.  Sometimes it's mistaken for...
