Simple Joys

 Some  of the ways I find joy are small and seemingly insignificant. I marvel at how a simple compliment, pretty skies, a goofy sibling, a good smell, even a nice thought can be enough to change a person's mood. Cruising through the boys' latest pictures, I found in a few something small, something simple that makes me happy... so, strictly from the boys' last two uploads, let me share these too-often-unnoticed-and-yet-wonderful things with you.

First and foremost, my Donna girl.. my number one joy!! I live for her sweet voice and her random hugs and kisses.

I find joy in Mary's crocuses..

I love our creeks.. something about the steadily running body of water relaxes me like nothing else can, at times.

I find joy in our home-made house, our wonderful front porch, our hanging laundry, random chickens.. pretty much everything in this picture.

I love that our peach trees are budding abundantly!

I find joy in Stephen and Michael's creativity in their photography..

I find joy in our dirt road and the frequent walks taken up and down. 

I find joy in Puff (better known as 'Puffers'), our beautiful Siamese cat, and all our lovely kitties..

I find joy in our cute ponies and how much the kids enjoy their rides..

I find joy in how much Donnie adores her newly-discovered (yet it's been in our family for as long as I can remember) old red wagon..

And I find incredible joy in our amazing skies!

...oh, and I find joy in this adorable picture of my lovely!! :)


  1. Wonderful pictures, Mary, especially of Donna!! She looks so happy and sweet - I love her in the red wagon! Isn't it amazing how something so simple makes a little one so happy? I agree with you - the simple things really are the best after all!

    Love in Christ,

  2. Wow!!! Awesome pics loved the rose!!! Donna seems to be a big part in your life!

    (Which I can see hehe!)

  3. I'd fit right in at your house... I love the simple joys in life :)


Comments make us happy! :)
