Ah, Thank God For The Simple Things!

My newly found blogger friend, Chris, at Enchanted Oak, is sponsoring a blogland money raising event. Since we can't all meet in person to raise the sides of the new barns and houses for the residents in Haiti, we do what we can do. If you haven't read her post yet regarding each of us listing the things we consider to be the simple pleasures in life, go there now, and then come back here and tell me what you think. Some of you multi talented writers out there will be writing poems and stories and bringing happiness to the rest of us just with your entries!

Here is a list of some things that bring me joy (In no particular order):

My hubby's dimple
Hearing my brother laugh
Knowing people like Chris who reach out to help others
Speaking out for what I know to be right for me
A good night's sleep
The good humor in people in blogland
The color pink
Music, Music, Music
Emails from my children
A big giant humongous orange sunrise
Wonderful photography (other people's)
Finding a new author that I really like
A jar of roasted peanuts
A tax refund
Learning new things
An excellent cup of coffee

Oh, dear girl, what a wonderful list! I laughed out loud at the tax refund. I can identify with so many of the joys in your life. If we could, I'd love to share an excellent cup of coffee with you this morning. Thanks for helping me spend $2 in Haiti.
Fondly, Chris
