"Teach us delight in the simple things."
A good reminder for myself when I feel a bit melancholy like I have today.
Since we’ve been here, it’d be honest to admit there have been times when I wondered why and what we were doing here.
And sometimes, the answer can be found in the simplest of things:
Life is definitely more simple here. I’m learning to adjust to the slower pace, to appreciating the simple pleasures that can be found taking Rocco to the park above, or just sitting out on our front porch.
But among all these wonderful things, in my own little world, it’s just different. Some days are just hard for me.
I have decided I want to plan a little garden area in our backyard. We spent some time at Lowe’s this weekend, and I was excited looking at all the magazines…all the possibilities. We’ve never lived in a place where things just grew so naturally. I think a garden will be a happy little project.
And tomorrow, I’m going to pick up some pansies for the front yard. Something tells me being out in the sunshine and getting my hands dirty will lift my spirits. :)
