As I was preparing material for today’s post, I realized that I just want to share a little bit of my happiness with you all. It’ll be a shorter post than usual, but I wanted to share my day with you. So here’s a little bit of what makes me smile! 😉
I’m not usually a morning person, but I woke up early today. I prayed and spent some quiet time with God and then I went for a run. I haven’t gone running in such a long time, but it was so exhilarating!
The crisp, cold air blowing past me, the burn that exercise brings, the quiet atmosphere. It was a good time. I loved every second.
Then I had some errands to run and came home to make french toast and coffee for breakfast.
I played with my two dogs and spent more time outdoors. It was such a beautiful morning! The sunlight dancing on the ground, the cool breeze softly blowing through the trees, the lovely feel of Fall. It was a great morning.
I felt peaceful and happy, energized and almost giddy.
Days like this are the best. To just enjoy the little things is such a blessing. I love the beauty of the simple, ordinary things in life.
I’m spending the rest of my day reading and listening to music, playing the piano and singing my favorite songs, coffee in hand and the aroma of freshly lit scented candles. (Possibly watching some college football with the best person on earth 😉 )
These are the days to look back on and smile at. These are the days I’ll appreciate when I’m older. This is the time to make memories. This is the time to live and enjoy to the fullest the life I’ve been given.
Here’s to happy days! 😀
