Taking a page out of Laura's book...

The simple things...

A raindrop on my cheek.
A gentle breeze in my hair.
A sunbeam's glow.
A laugh in the air.
A child's smile.
A homemade cake.
A misty sunrise.
A creaky swing.
A quiet morning.
A fading flower.
A peaceful twilight.
A winking star.
A slamming door.
A grass-stained knee.
A freshly-mown field.
A beat-up ball.
A lone cricket.
A crackling fire.
A stained apron.
A steaming cup.
An old piano.
A dusty book.
A ragged Bible.
A rusty truck.
A hidden creek.
A barefoot walk.
A scribbled note.
A sweet farewell.
Sometimes the simple things are really the big things.
Sometimes the things you think are insignificant are the things that make up what's most important.
And sometimes what seems easily forgettable becomes the most memorable.
Sometimes the simple things are the best things.

"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
