Ten blissful things

  • Waking up with toasty warm toes, and being able to stay in bed for awhile and enjoy them.
  • A newly opening rose in my very own garden.
  • Hearing my children belly laugh together over something at the kitchen table--all four of them together.
  • Leaves. I love leaves. I especially love them in May, when they are new but not tiny.
  • Hiking near a waterfall.
  • When each one of the socks in the laundry load has a mate at the end of folding.
  • 80 degrees F.
  • Shade on a sunny day.
  • Fresh strawberries, ripe and warm from the patch.
  • Going to bed at the end of a productive day.
