The best things in life aren’t things

November 2006 view

The best things in life aren’t things but rather….

The feel of your bare feet in the grass

Coming home

Spotting the first firefly of the summer

Holding a puppy

Running into an old friend

Reading a love letter

Walking down a country road

Finding the perfect gift for someone

Finding the perfect gift for someone ON SALE

Turning on the radio and hearing your favorite song

The smell of freshly baked bread

Hearing the sound of the key in the lock so you can go to sleep after waiting up

Seeing the colors in the sky at sunset

A sleeping baby

The laughter of a child

Smelling flowers in bloom

Holding hands

Lunch with a friend

The sound of a waterfall

Taking a nap

Counting a baby’s toes

The smell of morning coffee

A phone call “just because”

Watching a sunrise with someone you love

Crumbling dirt through your fingers

Snuggling on a cold night

Going through old photographs

Climbing into bed with clean sheets dried outdoors

Eating homegrown vegetables

Belly laughing

A surprise dance in the kitchen with your husband

Riding a motorcycle  and smelling fields of freshly mown hay

Salvation through Jesus Christ

Peace of mind



  1. How right you are.
    Be blessed,

  2. Could I add one? Hearing a grandchild say, "Grandma, can I go home with you?" blessings, marlene

  3. So true! It's relaxing just to read and contemplate your list. I'm thinking it would be a good exercise for me to keep a running list on my desk and add to it daily. ....rain on the roof...waking up to DH's sunny smile...warm spring sun on my back after a cold winter...

  4. Nice list! I think we all should make one of those occasionally.
    Thanks for the reminders!

  5. You have posted a completely wonderful list, each and every entry makes me smile. Thanks, Lori!
