"Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least." ~Goethe~

     The evening of the first day of Summer was a good one.  Warm temps.  Slight breeze in the air.  Everyone out in the backyard.  One little person being ever so patient with me while helping with a project.  Someone laying in the grass reading a book she just can't put down.  Myself trying to learn how to use the camera properly in manual mood from my dearest husband.  He's a saint when it comes to things like this because I am not the most patient with new things.  He's my rock.

     It all makes me stop and be thankful for all the simple but great things I have because of my little family.  Here's to more nights like this one.




  1. I love this post Kar! It's exactly how I've been feeling lately, much gratitude for the simple things in my life and just gratitude for my life and all who are in it.

  2. Good for you! I love to know others are dwelling in gratitude. It the easiest thing to do and offers such great reward. Gratefulness is on of my favorite things so I write about it often as well. Stop by if you get a chance. Happy Summer! Btw found you via Artistic Expressions by Elizabeth
