Oh happy I came across a wonderful blog.Christina from is asking everyone today to
create a list...what kind of a list,well,let me let her explain it to you..

"dear january, we love you but, it's time to show you who's boss! my friends and i are posting the simple things in life, that we appreciate. we will weave our words with love, gratefulness, meaning and spunk.

no matter how big or small, we will bring light with the simple things.
For each blog that participates, my family will donate $1.00, to doctors without borders.
up to 250.00
have fun and thank you from the bottom of my heart"

And so,after reading Christina's beautiful list and Kamana's list on I just had to start planning my own list.

Simple things that make my heart sing today..
-a breeze,the kind that makes you feel love,warmth,happiness,peace..all at the same time.
-small hands in mine,walking to and from school.
-unconditional love..when the eyes of my youngest gaze at me,they are filled with only love and sweetness.
-hot soup on a cold mothers comfort food.
-the way you feel when you get a haircut,,ready to face the world.
-the way he makes me laugh,even when I don't want to,and end up laughing at myself.
-the way her head is high.She is a leader,strong and ready..I may have to get out of her way,even if I don't want to.
-the sound of the fountain in the pool,the way the birds fly above me,the four legged friend that is always close.
-the place we call home..its not the walls,nor the paint,or even the blocks that hold it together..its the hearts inside..all beating with love for one another,its the sound of the laughter coming from the other room...or even the arguing...its the smell of dinner as we sit together,its the sofa in which we all sit to watch American Idol,its the blanket we all share.
-it's the gift,and I take it with open arms,grateful and blessed.The Gift of another day.
-it's you.
-its me.
-it's us.

As always,thank you so much for stopping by

Hello, Cat. I am visiting you today in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your list. I see you find many of the simple things that make life special in the your children. Me, too. You spoke of holding hands. I love that even though mine are all growing up, that I can still place my hand down behind me when crossing the street and a hand will great me without a word...
