My Favourite Simple Things

The warmth of a sincere smile.
The soothing sounds of nature.
Uproarious laughter with good friends.
The tranquility of solitary moments.
A steaming mug of rich coffee.
A child’s spontaneous hug.
The delicious aroma of flowers.
Intriguing conversations with a kindred spirit.
The feeling of being loved.
I have just completed The Simple Things Challenge. It’s a celebration of all the simple pleasures in life with the added BONUS of helping those who are now struggling in Haiti. For every list, poem or prose piece on this subject, Enchanted Oak and her family will donate $2 to Heartline Ministries’ medical clinic and program in Haiti. Interested? Visit Enchanted Oak and be prepared to post before midnight Sunday (PST). It’s simple!

Hi, dear Felicitas,
I like what you say about yourself in your profile. Writing is my passion as well and has been since I was able to hold a pencil. My discovery of blogging at the end of August last year has opened a wonderful door in my life.
Thank you for participating in the celebration of simple blessings on behalf of Haiti. It's a beautiful list of moments you have here. I think we would have an intriguing conversation over a good dark cup of coffee somewhere. But we do like our solitude, too, don't we?
Be blessed today.
Cheers from Chris

I cannot not say I love it, especially this or that, instead I must say i love each and every single one of those 'simple' things.... That is all LOVE.

You are a very sincere writer, I like that.

Intriguing conversations with kindred spirits, those have to be cultivated, I am finding out.

as well as solitary moments. I place a silent house in there, too.

Thanks for visiting. glad you enjoyed it. you go girl.
