I close my eyes and envision myself walking my big dog, Rusty.  It is a nice summer day; there is a slight breeze so the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.  My dog’s fluffiness is blowing along with the light wind, and he bounces with each step.  The day is perfect, I am dressed comfy, & Rusty and me are on our way to get ice cream.

I close my eyes and envision myself swinging on the cobweb-covered tire swing in my backyard.  I am spinning around so fast that I close my eyes from the dizziness.

I close my eyes and envision myself lying on the porch swing, staring up at the porch roof.  There are lots of old cobwebs and spots where the white paint is chipping off of the ceiling.  A large bumblebee flies around above me, its wings flapping so violently that I can’t even see them.  The bee is persistent at flying into the glass window pain, but with no luck at getting inside.  I close my eyes and listen to the bee’s humming.  The sun’s warm rays are soaking into my skin as I lie there, disturbed by nothing.

I close my eyes and envision myself lying in my twin-size bed in my small room on the top floor of our house.  There is only one window in my room, and it is filled with the AC, which is turned on.  My lights are off, so the room is dark and quiet.  Soothing.

I close my eyes and envision myself opening a can of soda.  As I take my first sip, the fizzies tickle my lips.

Sometimes it is so so easy to forget the simple things in life.  In reality, it is not the expensive “toys” we get or the lavish places we go to that make us happy, but those simple moments in which we can enjoy the simplicity of life that our everyday schedules tend to smother.  I saw the picture drawn by *nemurism and just had to write about it.  I instantly thought of walking a dog, such a simple thing that can be enjoyed if only looked at in the right perspective.  So my message for you today is this: enjoy life’s simplicity!!  Live life to its fullest and never –no, Never!- brush aside those “little” things that bring you even the tiniest smile or sigh of contentment.
