Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things…
Sleeping late in a cozy quilt on a cold winter morning.
Breathing in the deeply the whiff of fresh cut grass.
Getting drenched in the rain with wild abandon.
Marveling at the glory of a majestic double rainbow.
Standing by the ocean and –
getting mesmerized by the infinite patterns in blue of the ocean waves.
hearing the sound of gentle ocean waves, and nothing else.
watching the first rays of the rising sun flood the sky.
witnessing a summer sunset with fiery reds and pinks,
romancing with the shimmering reflection of the full moon in the darkness of night.
The aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
The tantalizing scent of hot water poured over tea leaves.
Walking barefoot on a beach, hand in hand with the love of your life.
Playing with a purring cat.
Staring at the soft glow of a candle.
Watering a plant every day.
Buying a bouquet of flowers for your love – or yourself.
Tending to a lucky bamboo for five minutes every day.
Planting a tree and watching it grow.
Playing ball with your children.
Enjoying a passionate kiss with your sweetheart.
It doesn’t take a lot to be happy.
It doesn’t take the latest gadget to be contented.
It doesn’t take stuff to be contented.
What’s on your list of simple pleasures?
