I think the simplest things in life can be the sweetest.
Looking in the bedroom and seeing The Boy and His Dad laying on the bed reading together.
Eating cherry tomatoes right off the vine.
Finding the biggest or ‘coolest’ leaf.
Stopping to smell the flowers on a walk.
Eating homemade bread right out of the oven.
Getting to read (!) on the patio while The Boy is busy emptying the pool water into the sandbox.
Walking around, checking out the wares at the local Farmers’ Market.
And here’s the kicker. Most of these simple pleasures are free! Don’t forget to count your blessings as you encounter life on a single income.
