Man, I’m loving participating in Free Write Fridays. =)

Prompt: Share the simple joys in your life…

Share a smile, earn a love.
Hold a hand, earn some trust.
The simple yet known joys.

A complete starry sky,
When french fries are made just right,
Singing your favorite song without music,
Knowing you made someone’s day a bit brighter
By being an utter and complete fool on the street.
Feels good, doesn’t it?

The laughter of a baby, whose love is boundless,
The texture of the leaves on a bush or tree, whose life isn’t endless,
The scent of freshly baked cookies, which disappears soon,
The image of one helping another, or even better that being you.

Realizing there is something bigger out there than just us,
Whether it be the cosmos, God or something similar.
Discovering a new land and all of it’s secrets
Even if it takes more than one visit.
Getting stuck in your imagination,
praying the visit won’t ever end
Because it’s so wonderful.

* * *

Take a deep breath and count to ten.
Where do you go? What do you see? What do you feel? What brings you joy?

Love it! The scent of freshly baked cookies…oh yea! We made some last night and I was thinking how much I love that smell and how happy everyone seemed to get when they smelled them too. Oh what simple pleasures!
Thanks for this sweet contribution to Free Write Friday! Xox
