Simply Showing January Who's Boss~

Two Hearts
Joining Christina for
Simply Heartfelt~Simple love from my heart

 a butter cream sun unfolding my day
feeling the wind beneath my wings
open windows with spring floating in
rain songs
sacrifices made
warm beach sand reflecting on my face
closing my eyes, letting the silence take over

i hear love

experiencing life

while living loud
staying up all night just because they came home

laughing till I can’t breathe

because laughter is like sunshine to my ears

^..^ kitty kisses ^..^
rainbow colored soap bubbles
doodles in the dirt

love notes
soft rain drops on the water

spring painting its new canvas on the earth
sweet red and pink vintage valentines

paper cut hearts with pink glitter

~creating art~
quilted valentine card
the hum of my sewing machine piecing together some love
polka dotted ribbons
a beautiful scarf hand knitted by her

licking the beaters

homemade pancakes with warm syrup
singing praises

pj’s on a cool Sunday afternoon after the heels come off from church
completion with a smile
~cute rubber boots in puddles~
Barren Threads
threads on wooden spools
balls of yarn
answers to those questions
written words on a page
a strong heart

~listening to my heart~


It honestly does not take much to make me happy.
Simple pleasures are all around us; we just have to stop
and “see” them for the first time and then appreciate them.

Keeping it real….and uncomplicated

Dear Cora (my niece's name, too, so lovely): I come to you on the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your list. Rain songs ~ yes ~ they sing to me and bring out the poet in me. Perhaps because they make me take time for a moment to listen...
