Simple Pleasures

SimplePleasuresDayle over at  A Collection of This and That has a new meme called Simple Pleasures.  I really like the precept for this meme because it has us to stop and pause and think about the simple  pleasures of everyday life.  And isn’t that what it’s all about anyway, is the simple everyday type of things that we take for granted. This mem to me goes hand and hand with the Thankful Thursday meme I like to do.

Today my simple pleasure is simple really.



Something that we are in much need of, so therefore I am grateful for it as well.  You can see my Thankful Thursday post below.

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back
and realize they were the big things.

Okay - I love rain too - that's a good one. I like what you said about having to stop and think - always a good thing. I love your smile in your picture and I love your quote.

Oh Cindy, your blog is pure sunshine!! And I love this rain picture!

It is SO nice to meet you...what a beautiful spirit you have...

On Friday-Sunday I have a link party where people just tell what their favorite song is on their blog and link up their blog so everyone can visit....It doesn't have to be a religious's whatever is your favorite!

I would love for you to join us!
P.S. I love this gingham and your house--wow!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that quote. It's one of my all-time favorites, and I actually have it on my sidebar.

I LOVE a summer rain. Where I live, we rarely get any. I am in a desert climate, and we average only about 11 inches of precip a year...most of that in the form of snow in the winter. RARE is the day that we get a summer shower.

Have a blessed day,

We live in the Pacific Northwest and have tons of rain and I never get tired of listening to it. We even covered our patio, just so we could sit and enjoy it year round.
Glad to meet you!

Gayle said...

Enjoyed stopping by your blog. I'll be back when I have more time. :-) I love a rainy day!

So lovely to come into your home and visit with you! I do enjoy listening to rain showers especially on a covered porch on a summer evening.


Debbie said...

Living where I do and seeing the need for that rain, I VERY much agree that it is a simple pleasure.

Even in year where we have had "enough", it still provides a good excuse to stay inside and sit a spell.

Joan said...

Cindy - you have a lovely blog and a beautiful home! It's nice to "meet you." I also participate in Thankful Thursdays - I've just missed you there.

Looking forward to visiting again.


Denise said...

I'd sure take some summer rain right now too. over 100 every day this week, I want it to be Fall already!! Hope you're having a good week sweetie.

Oh how we'd LOVE some rain north of Philly! Honestly, it has only rained 2 days this whole summer!

Lori said...

That is a neat meme, and we got some summer rain yesterday to cool us off. It was wonderful. :) Have a nice weekend. ((BIG HUGS))!!

Hi Cindy! I really do love that meme, & love the photo that you shared. I LOVE photos of rain on a window.

I love the doodle fonts too, but did you know that if others don't have them downloaded on their computer, than they can't see them? I can see your doodles, but only because I have that doodle font. If you go look at it on a computer that doesn't have them, all you see is a big letter. Thought you would like to know.

Hope you have a blessed week Cindy. Thank you for your sweet friendship. Love you!
