Life's Simple Pleasures

It's been a bit since we posted, but we were handed a dose of reality last week. Sheryl had quite the scare last week (won't go into details) other than she spent 7 days in the hospital. After all was said and done (and several tests) we are happy to report she is doing well and all tests we negative. With that being said, and with inspiration from a fellow blogger, we take another look at some of life's simple pleasures. Some you do every day and don't give a second thought. Others you may notice but may not take the time to apprecate. But when the thought of losing a loved one/best friend/soul mate hits you square in the face, you take the time. So tomorrow as you get on with being busy, just stop for a moment and remember...........

The feeling you get walking hand in hand with that special person

That long hot shower

The way the day smells after a spring rain

A beautiful sunset

The scent of that rose bush as you pass by

Your first cup of coffee

Waking up and seeing how beautiful and peaceful your partner looks as they sleep

The deep down feeling of being in love

We could go on and on, but you get the idea. You hear it all the time, stop and smell the roses, but how often do you do it. Take the time and reward yourself, life is too short not to.

That was it, take Care and remember to Love Your Life as we do ours........more and more every day.

Wow, that must have been very scary, glad to hear the good news that all is well.

And thanks for the reminder to be thankful each day for what you have.

I understand what you are saying because my husband is undergoing Chemo. Life is so short so enjoy it! Easier said than done.
