Just when I needed to see a flower my Peace Lily burst forth with a bouquet. This huge lily was once just a small plant at my father's funeral. It has grown a lot in the seven years I've had it. It seems to love it's spot by the French doors and is happy there. Sometimes the simplistic things bring you the most pleasure. 

Sometimes, the simple things are more fun and meaningful than all the banquets in the world ...” 

Faith Baldwin
“I have learned over a period of time to be almost unconsciously grateful--as a child is--for a sunny day, blue water, flowers in a vase, a tree turning red. I have learned to be glad at dawn and when the sky is dark. Only children and a few spiritually evolved people are born to feel gratitude as naturally as they breathe, without even thinking. Most of us come to it step by painful step, to discover that gratitude is a form of acceptance.” 

“The simple everyday experiences become the doorway to new thoughts and inspirations.”
