Life’s simplest joys are best: a hug from a loved one, a kind word, a smile, the aroma of coffee right as you take the first sip, friends sharing stories and laughter, children growing, life awakening, a new day. That’s not seen simply. It takes work. See, we’re taught at a very young age that … Continue reading Love your life
