Simple joys... we all have them.... they are just little things... like the shadow of the harp on the wall that my youngest pointed out to me... just a simple shadow of my harp, but it brought a little smile to my face. :)
I might have just walked on by without really looking at it if she hadn't pointed it out, making me stop to enjoy it with her. Yes, that was also a large part of the enjoyment... sharing it with her. :)
Then there were the beautiful Hibiscus blossoms from the plants a couple of my sons gave to me for Mother's Day... the flowers are colorful and cheerful. :)
The tiger lilies are open in the garden... and the color is pretty... especially against the white picket fence.
Other flowers in the garden... with their cheerful yellows. :)
My lisianthus are blooming! They are such beautiful flowers... I love the double ones that are purple... they almost look like purple roses.
The pattern of a lace curtain against the sky... just a little thing, but it was fun to notice and enjoy.
Swings at the park... we had a church picnic yesterday... and those swings had a lot of use. At the beginning, several of the adults (yes, I was one of them! :) were swinging... what fun.
As one of the adults said.... "You never get too old to swing." I think she's right. :)
The kids loved the slide too........ if it had been just my family, I may have gone down the slide also... but I didn't. It was nice to see all of the families together, having fun... taking care of the little ones... and enjoying good fellowship. Precious.
The cattails were from the park also.. just a simple thing....
When we look for them... there are simple things to enjoy... all around us. We get so busy, we don't look for them... or even notice them... and that is sad. God has blessed us with much to rejoice over... there is much heaviness in our lives... and in our world... and we can't ignore those things, but we can notice the simple joys... and thank God for them.
I hope you have a wonderful week and that you notice some simple joys that can brighten your day. :) Thank you for visiting.
