Satisfied.

It's the simple things in life
that really are the BEST.  
I love how my children
remind me that 
I can and should find
JOY in the little things  
like swimming in a bucket 
and pouring water onto
rocks to make them shiny.  
They don't really
need fancy toys, high tech gadgets 
or anything that costs
a lot of money.
They are  


SATISFIED
and


CONTENT



and



FULL.

Lord, help me to be more childlike 
and less distracted 
by the bells and whistles
of this world.

  2. Awe, Michele, that makes me smile way down deep. Do you know how many times in the Dominican I have clung to your wise words, "Buck up and deal!"? I think I may have to write about that in a future post.
