t.h.e. s.i.m.p.l.e. t.h.i.n.g.s.

the warm bed where i lay my head
having food to eat when i'm hungry
every breath i am blessed to take.













sound of silence, then
in comes my daughter
marching to the beat of her own drum
phenomenal, unorthodox, brilliant
look mommy, i made this for you
enjoying her adventurous spirit













the infinite beauty of nature
having the most wonderful friends
in the whole wide world
nascar race day
go smoke! (and my boy toys)
so sinfully beautiful.













*The Simple Things is hosted by Christina over at Soul Aperture. Do stop by and enjoy so simple wednesday on July 8.

I saw it this time (quick study that I am!). Hey...I have a pair of NASCAR sunglasses. I bought them at a dollar store in Phoenix one time when I was there and forgot to take mine. Do you envy me?

Oh what a lovely list! The simple things really are the best, aren't they? "phenomenal, unorthodox, brilliant..." what a lucky mommy to have a daughter with those delightful characteristics, and what a lucky girl to have a mommy that treasures those characteristics in her!

Happy Wednesday!

I'm loving the idea of the warm bed on your list. It's winter here and I don't much like getting up in the mornings any more.

Tracy said...

Beautiful post, Se-Lah...full of life and love...I'm singing along with you :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Christina said...

Hello beautiful! You are first on the list this morning and oh my, am I feeling the love over here.

Your list is wonderful! The words, "look mommy, i made this for you" are very happy words for sure!

Gillian said...

That photo (hammock worthy) makes me pause for breath. What is it about blue water and blue skies that calms us so much?
Great list.
Children have that endearing way of breaking the silence, but it's a good thing.
