TEN FREE LITTLE LUXURIES
Finding the sunny spot to sit in and just close your eyes for a minute. Just soaking in the warmth. Our pets know this luxury. Smart little beggars.
Drinking your morning coffee, tea or milk in a pretty teacup. A pretty saucer is an added bonus.
Eating your lunch to quiet music at a properly set table.
Really listening to a child's laughter.
Drinking in all the beauty of sunrise and sunset. The sky as it changes throughout the day.
Crisply starched pillowcases. Pillows fluffed. The sheets folded over the blanket, proper. In other words a well-made bed.
Pinning on a pretty brooch, or earrings. Or wearing a bit of lace. Or something pink. Something that makes you feel ladylike.
Reading something you really enjoy. Not something just because it's on Glenn Beck's or Oprah's reading list. Not something that you think you should be reading. Just something that you enjoy.
Taking a good sniff of that mornings coffee, that wonderful soap, the herbs growing on the window ledge.
A moonlit walk.
Well there's ten to get you started. Feel free to add to the list in the comments. Never forget to enjoy this wonderful gift called life!
