From time to time someone will ask why I am usually a very content person and upbeat about life. I am not sure how to respond except to say I am an optimist by nature and think I have figured out some of the big questions as they relate to my life. I have things prioritized.
One of the things I know for sure is that the little things in life are the best. That fact came to mind today as I walked around our home and noted all the reasons to smile. Home is where I love to be and where I feel most peaceful. It is where I plot during the winter months about plants and then putter my way to blooms in the warm season. On days like this I know James and I are rich in the real sense of the word.
