I find such joy in the present moment. Life is a true gift to me. The beauty that surrounds us is astounding. I find that the simple things in life are really what touch my spirit; hugs from my children, the beaming sun shining through my window in the morning, the dew glistening on the flowers in my garden, the sound of laughter or the pitter patter of feet on the hard wooden floors of my home, and the sweet taste of tea in the afternoon. These kinds of simple moments are what life is made of.
