The Simple life means you only carry the necessities with you. Could you live out of just one suitcase? I admit my makeup is considered a necessity for me. Okay, I am vain when it comes to my appearance.
So what else did I decide to be a necessity?
My computer so that I can write no matter where I may be sleeping that night…my iPod, music for me is one of the greatest ways to keep inspired…my Magnificat for the prayers…the Kindle for reading.
When you go on vacation you also simplify your life,even if it is only for a couple weeks.
Just as when you are facing a terminal illness you decide that as long as your loved ones are nearby then you can endure much more.
As humans, we draw strength from our loved ones.
My husband and I are here to support one another no matter what life may bring including one bathroom and two feet of kitchen counter space.
Each night we fill our tiny juice tumblers with some of our boxed wine (yes, I did mean boxed wine) and toast to the end of another simple day.
The Simple Life can still be a Quality Life.
You can decide what your attitude will be with any hand dealt to you in life.
I certainly learned from my friend how important your attitude is especially when things are not going to your liking.
I will look for everything I can to make this a positive experience.
Each new day we have the choice to make it the best day ever no matter what.
We have our love, our God, and as a friend recently reminded me…
we have our Guardian Angels.
Who knows we may come to prefer this Simple Life;
where two forks, two spoons, two burners,
and two feet of counter space may not be that bad after all.
Join me in celebration of the Simple things in life…
God, Family, and Friends.
May each of you be blessed,
as only God knows your real needs.
