The Simple Things




Happy Monday. I'm celebrating The Simple Things today
being hosted by the creative and soulful Christina.

The Simple Things:

Baby Zoey entering the world.

My daily affirmations.

A day of blue sky and clouds.

Holding my mom's hand as we cross the street.

A rainy day where I can walk with my thoughts.

Beauty and peace radiating from my altar.

Memories of Sean to ease my tears.

Feeling alive in unexpected moments.

Chocolate.

My book of monologues and poetry.

Love of my closest friends.

Mabel purring next to me.

Montgomery Clift in any movie.

Your simple things are so lovely. I stopped and thought about Montgomery Clift and what a great talent he was...I cannot help but think how he might have been pleased to be on your list.

Something peaceful underlying your list. Beautiful image as well. Did you draw that?

Laurel said...

Been thinking about you a lot. Having survived a loss and finding a second chance to love is going to happen for you as it has for me. The good news - you will still have memories of Sean to make you smile. And wipe the tears away.They won't leave you. I used to worry that I'd forget. I didn't . You won't either. I love your message today. Need to take a simple inventory for my own self.
Love to you Sweet Shell.
