The Little Things

A single flower in a vase can make you smile
A beautiful jug from years gone by
A quiet place to sit and read



Are just some of the little things in life


That opens our heart and brightens our days



 
Taking a minute to enjoy the beauty around me


I hope your days are filled with special things that make you smile my friends and that you share some here with me.

Every comment brings sunshine to my day.



Always Love In Wendy’s World
