Simple Joy – Field of Clover

Beautiful Spring Weather Today we spent a lot of time outside enjoying the beautiful spring weather together.  Watching Joy playing outside today, I again, realized that so much of what she does are simple joys.  These joys make our everyday lives so wonderful if we take time out to recognize and enjoy them.  I believe these often go unnoticed as we rush through our hectic lives.  Viewing life through the innocent eyes of a child gives me Read More

I enjoy sitting here frequently, as it is a very comfy place to relax.  I am thinking about my day today… This afternoon I was sitting outside.  I really enjoy looking at and watching the small lizards that run around everywhere here.  So I was enjoying the afternoon and watching a lizard.  I then had an overwhelming feeling Read More
