Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures From the Simply Divine Creations of God

~ I love spending Time with my Family...
My Husband's Hands...
and his Tender Loving Care...
My Daughter's Beautiful Smile
and her Eternal Optimism....
Remembering William,
my Only Beloved Son...
His Brilliant Smile...
The Echoes of his Laughter and
All of the Crazy Things He Did...
I love The Art of Photography to
Capture Moments of Time and
 Turn Them into Life Treasures...
The Simple Things in Life
like Fallen Leaves Sparkling
with a Morning Frost...
Walking Barefooted on the Beach...
Fluffy Down Comfortors and 
Cozy Down Pillows...
Lying in a Meadow in the
Spring to Watch the
Clouds Change Shapes...
Seeing Someone's Face Light
up with a Smile when I
Show them their Portraits...
Writing...whether it is Journaling,
Life Quotes, Songs,
Letters or Poetry...
Music for the Soul...
Trying to play the Piano...
A Good Book...
Secret Gardens...
Making Memory Books
(I refuse to call them
Scrapbooks because
there is Nothing Scrappy
 about Precious Memories)
Cozy Fires on a Rainy Day...
Having the Courage to Dive
in Head First on a Hot Summer
 Day Instead of Taking 45
Minutes to Get in Up to my
Waist (my family loves to
tease me about this -
You'd have to know the Story!)
and Finally...
Learning to Live Again
 after Losing our Son...
It has Not Been
an easy Journey...
but I think
I am Finally on my Way...

  1. Susan, you are not only a talented photographer, you are also a talented writer! Love the leaf picture, its beautiful.

  2. Thank you Steph...I write more than anything else and it has been a dream for a long time to someday write a Photography book on Moments of Time, (not an instructional book...but like a gift book with Life Quotes and such).
    Stepping out and applying for the SoAR Scholarship was a leap of blind faith for me and I hope it happens, but if nothing else comes of it...I know I tried and got past the fear to "just do it!"
    Thanks again, Sweetie

  3. Susan, I am so glad that you are finding your way back to living life everyday even if it is one step at a time. Things never really get any easier but we can find joy in knowing we will see the faces of our loved ones again soon. We continue to pray for you and your family.

  4. Thank you so much for your kind words, but most of all for your prayers. It has not been an easy journey and have learned that grief is not something you get's something you go through ~ as your family knows only too well.
    I appreciate the time you spent to read my post. It makes my heart smile when I can inspire someone else through my writing or photography. That is my inspire others to soar on wings like eagles!

  5. Susan,
    Wishing you and your family a joyous Christmas. Thank you for the reminder of all the simple, divine moments in our lives. They're easy to overlook in all the craziness of the season.

  6. Hi Raine,
    Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and also for your kind is always my desire to find the simple things that make life so beautiful!
