Simple Things

We often  try to over analyze life. I've learned that living simply makes it easier. I focus on the good, do the best i can, and leave the rest to fate. Here are some things that make me happy :

 The sound of my children's voices
 Watching my children lay in bed as they sleep
 the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning
 the fresh smell of the morning when you step outside and the dew is still on the grass
 a good song
 watching a mocking bird get after a crow
 the smell and feel of a downdraft gust front of an approaching thunderstorm
 the soft feel of a child's touch
 my loving wife
 my family
 this great community in which I reside
 the feel of a summer's evening breeze
 the sound of a hawk's call
 the soft coo of a mourning dove
 the song of a mocking bird
 faith hope and love

There are obviously many more things that God has provided us in this world to bring us joy. But we must not focus on the wrong things that will fail us. It is inevitable that bad things will happen. But there will always be good to focus on and if we keep our faith and hope in God, then nothing can beat us. The best way to live life is happily, despite the circumstances.

  1. What makes me happy: being your wife, and watching you watch the kids - that melts my heart, every time.
