A Simple Life

I can't count the amount of times I've heard my sweetie tell me, "I have a simple life, I like my simple life." You always hear people talking about getting out there, doing more, or working towards something better. What if you already have the better? Could it be that some people are just never awake to the happiness in their own lives? I can't argue that I have never had that feeling people talk about. That feeling of wanting something more. The crazy thing is that I have already been there and back. Thomas and I went from nothing materially to anything we wanted to buy. Now? We enjoy the simple things like watching new movie releases that come out on Tuesdays, canoeing on the pond, taking a rope and tying off to the floater at the lake in our little inflatable fish boat, taking a wild ride on the dirt bike through the trails, etc. Our life is simple. We don't go all out trying to buy the latest gadget, take huge trips across the world, or look to improve our life materially. We simply enjoy our simple life. We have a lot of love in our house (have I mentioned there are six of us?).

Tonight Thomas got off work an hour early and I was so excited because I got to see his face an extra hour today. Does that make my life simple? Probably. But the little things like that extra hour or the fact that I simply made BLT sandwiches for supper and he told me "thank you baby that was so good, it really was," is amazing! I like my simple life and wouldn't change it for the world. I think those who have the greatest golds in the world could never be as happy as I am right now.

If you like this, please enjoy:
