While visiting MattysThoughts, I discovered, Enchanted Oak. The author of this inspiring blog is hosting a challenge this weekend. It’s called The Simple Things Challenge and yes, it is really simple. Celebrate the simple pleasures in your life by posting a list, a poem, or a prose piece about the joy of simple things, and the author will donate $2.00 to Heartline Ministries for their medical clinic and other programs in Haiti.
So, without further ado …. My simple list.
~ Riding a horse almost as old and slow as I am
~ Being served coffee in bed … every day … by the same man … my personal cabana boy … named Bob
~ Having a two year old wrap her nasty, grubby arms around my neck and give me a big sloppy kiss with a nose full of boogers
~ Watching the sunrise
~ Watching the sunset
~ Breathing clean air
~ Drinking clean water
~ Eating food from my garden
