The Simple Things In Life
It is so easy to take for granted the simple things in life.
When we take things for granted we are not grateful.
Thinking about this prompt made me realize I take most
of what I see, hear, feel, do and have for granted.
I take walks through my neighborhood.
It is a beautiful, picturesque, safe, quiet place to live.
Where I live there is a laundry room with several washers and dryers.
Folding the warm fresh sweet smelling clothes and linens is a delight.
Doing laundry is hardly a chore.
There is also a library in the building.
We can donate and borrow books whenever we want.
And now we have a Fitness Center where we can exercise
anytime day or night.
I always have food in my kitchen and clothes in the closet.
I have a comfy cozy home.
I have two catkids that are funny and loving.
I work part-time because I want to.
I work for and with good people.
My health is good and my body usually works as it was designed to.
I walk and talk, see and hear, think and dream, sleep and wake up.
All without thinking about it.
All simple things I take for granted. I am grateful for each and every one.
I will try to remember how blessed I am and be thankful every day not just when prompted.
