I’ve been thinking lately of being happy and content with the simple things. For myself, sometimes I feel pretty content, and then the next time I’m thinking “boy, it would be nice to have that, look like her,have money like them,be as good a mom as she is,be creative like her,ect. ect. So being content is something I need to work at. I think we all do. And really, we are so blessed. I think sometimes if we’d have less, we would be more content. Why is it, that when we have so much already, we desire more? Perhaps our sinful nature.
I decided to post some simple things that I love and treasure. And in the spirit of simplicity, I chose not to edit any of these photos. I tossed that idea back and forth, just because I can be a bit obsessive compulsive. I think everything needs tweaking 🙂 But, I stuck to the plan. So here’s to the simple things in life…Healthy newborn farm babies. If only they stayed so cute 🙂My sweet little girl. She woke up too soon from her afternoon nap crying for mommy. Needed a cuddle, and back to sleep she went, with a tear still on her cheek. ❤ Healthy children and a pond for them to skate on. This was a very chilly morning, and I was incredibly happy to head back to the house.Watching her enjoy her shadow 🙂A son that asks to wash dishes. Even though this doesn’t happen often 🙂Soup, salad, homemade bread. Yes indeedy!The privilege of living on a farm. This guy would be lost without his precious cows :)* Saturday morning pancakes. With chocolate chips, of course 🙂Time to scrapbook A cute little girlie playing on mom and dad’s bed Homemade bread. The smell of it baking, the melt in your mouth taste. There is a reason I don’t bake bread very often 😉Cuddles from little peopleIcecream and hot fudge sauce for an afternoon snack. Need I say more? 🙂
Those are just a few things. I could think of so many more! What simple things do you appreciate? Let’s take the time to enjoy them!
* I realized after I was double checking this post that the picture of Tristan and the cows had a filter added to it. (I had taken it with my phone, and was playing around with it). So technically that one was edited 🙂
And I’m trying not to notice all the things that should be cropped, brightened, etc. on the other photos 🙂 Simplicity, I tell myself 🙂
