Simple Things

Chris, over at Enchanted Oak has issued a challenge to all bloggers. For every blogger who posts a list of the simple things that make them happy, she will donate $2.00 to Heartline Ministries in Haiti. Here are the rules from her blog:
Post your piece this weekend and include a link to my blog. Then pop in here to say you’ve posted your “Simple Things.” Post by midnight, Pacific time, Sunday and don’t forget to link with me and notify me that you’ve posted. You can borrow the “Simple Things” photo. If you don’t have a blog, a comment on my blog will count too if you tell me so.
Here are some simple things that make me happy:
  • Playing with my grandchildren - they are so full of life and joy.
  • Eating a meal with my wife - there is nobody like Ann.
  • Sharing my life with friends - they listen with their heart.
  • Penning my thoughts here - you all are so very gracious.
  • Singing along with a song - just something special about music.
  • Watching NFL Football - even cheering for the Chiefs is fun.
  • Enjoying a good movie with Ann - I am a sucker for flicks.
  • My morning cup of coffee - the first one tastes the best.
Feel free to join in Chris' challenge if you read this on Sunday.. and let me know if you do.


  1. Dear Bob, you are the first man to sing the praise of his wife all day, since I've been touring the Simple Things blogs. It was a joyous thing to see. Thanks for doing this. I pray and support Heartline in Haiti and all the others trying to help, but prayer seems so small a thing. Yet, what a mighty army we are, when banded together.
    Blessings to you and Ann,
    Chris from Enchanted Oak

  2. kids keep you young dont to hear about our love of your wife as well. smiles. great list!

  3. Thanks Barbara! I forgot to mention that I saw the challenge at your blog. I loved your list too.

    Thanks Chris! My wife Ann is an inspiring woman. Since March 2002 she has been battling Devic’s Disease, a disabling neurological disorder that put her in a motorized wheelchair two years ago. She has amazing spiritual strength and discipline. Ann inspires me every day.

  4. Thanks for the tip, Bob! Posting that list may have been the happiest 15 minutes of my day.....

    Happy to help in whatever way I can.........
