More Simple Things

January 27th, 2010 · 19 Comments

Thank you so much to the sweet Christina of Soul Aperture for hosting another Simple Things. And have you heard that Christina and her family will be donating $1.00 to Doctors Without Borders for each blog that joins in the fun? How cool is that!?!

my simple things…

opening a brand new book, opening an old worn book, the smell of lilacs in the spring, the feel of mud squishing through my toes, a hot shower on a cold morning, fluffy pillows and warm blankets, creating a new pattern and liking it when I’m finished, always being able to to provide my children with fresh food and clean water, avocados, walking in the woods with my family, having a good dream and remembering it when I wake up, homemade chicken noodle soup, my pup snuggling up next to me on a chilly evening.

I’m having a little giveaway here tomorrow, January 28, 2010. The hearts above are a clue! Stop by if you get a chance.

    Being able to take care of our children…sometimes we take it for granted (as do they) — but it really is a gift and a blessing and a simple pleasure we are meant to enjoy.

    I’ve just started to crochet and I love it. We have a couple of ladies that meet once a month at Church(The Christian Crafters). The leader gave me your web site,the patterns are easy to read and that helps me a lot. We make chemo hats,iv covers for children,Prayer shawls and other items too.
    Have Blessed Day.
