The older I get, the more I know that there’s still a lot I don’t know. And I’ve also come to realize that my most favorite things cost little or no money.
Things like gentle breezes. Winter’s hush. Baby kisses. Cozy afghans. Squishy socks. A good cuppa coffee. Doggy nuzzles.
I see people rushing out to buy the latest greatest everything, from new techie gadgets to new SUVs; another “dream” home to replace the first one; and a pair of trendy shoes to add to the collection that now requires a shelf-lined room of its own. We are a materialistic society, bent on staying up with whatever’s popular out there. (Have you ever personally met the people who decide which way to jerk your chain? They announce what’s In and what’s Out, like turning a light switch on and off. And people jump, like cracked wooden puppets.)
So, I decided to create something tangible that I could touch and read–a list of my favorite things (well, some of them) on a throw pillow.
The more I ponder this list, the more thankful I am for life’s little blessings. Because in the end, they aren’t so little after all, are they?
