The simple things that put a smile on your face.

About two hours ago, I was feeling a bit warm inside my house. So I went to sit down in the front porch. I realized that it's been so long since I actually did that. The pitch blue sky was filled with clouds passing passively through. The moon was bright. I can hear the crickets. And most of all, the beautiful wind blowing. :) That put a smile on my face when I felt that first air blow pass by me and raise my bangs. It made me remember of my past. When I actually took the time to go outside. I didn't need a reason to go. I just...went. Or when I was a child. I wasn't embarrassed of going outside by myself. I didn't need any friends, or someone by my side. I would go ride my bike, or walk around the block. Now, I feel so weird doing that. And this just made me feel...human. Actually take the time to enjoy the simple things in life. To feel that beautiful breeze. :) What simple things make you happy?

You are right, the evenings are getting to be so that you can go out side and sit down and just relax without the heat. A slight breeze blowing, to just look around at what nature has given us. I do a lot of thinking too while setting there, no one to bother you, the sky is beautiful. I feel free and not associated with all the daily things we have to handle and worry about. It makes me smile to also, water and take care of my flowers that I grew this year. Winter is coming and they are dying out fast but they was so pretty all summer. Gardening really makes me smile and relaxed.

Today I enjoyed walking through a apple orchard, that made me happy. It was at a place I had taken my children when they were young.
