The Small Pleasures

That Breyers now makes lactose-free ice cream... that my cat likes to sleep in my lap while I watch TV... that people on this site have chosen such hilarious and creative group titles and told such laugh-out-loud stories that keep popping up unexpectedly as I browse... the way a stream sounds when it runs over rocks and the way the ripples look when the sunlight bounces off of them... the world is full of such small pleasures. 

Sometimes I worry about things, about people... but then I get back to the small pleasures and it's so good, and I'm just happy to be alive.

Its the small simple pleasures that makes us feel so good.It also makes us feel so blessed and grateful too.

The simple stuff is what gives peace of mind for me ... helps me refocus and re-center ... so calming ...
