Simple Days



"Don't let yourself get so busy that you miss those little but important extras in life ~
the beauty of a day...
the smile of a friend...
the serenity of a quiet moment alone.
For it is often life's smallest pleasures and gentlest joys that make the biggest and most lasting difference."

True ! I like to sit on my patio watch and listen to the birdies ! It can get quite noisy in our yard as we have so many different song birds . Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !
