Simple Pleasures

Simple pleasures in life make the big difference.  Take, for example, my first bike ride with my son last night around our little town.  It was good exercise, we enjoyed the ride & the weather was perfect.  We saw a few of our neighbours along the way.  We spotted some amazing wild animals (including a bald eagle pearched atop a birch tree overlooking the small waterfall located down the road from our house).  And it is a memory we can cherish forever.

So take the time to slow down, do something you like to do with a friend or a loved one.  Enjoy the moments – the simplicity of life at a particular time.  And cherish the memories it creates.

Tell me about some of your own simple pleasures in life.  Leave me a comment below & let me know how you enjoy those simpler times & the memories you’ve created.  Until next time…
