So many meanings to that word. Some can’t be typed here. Others bring a warmth to our soul.
Today, I’m thinking about simple pleasures. Things that don’t cost a dime, but leave memories for a lifetime.
Yesterday, I took a blanket and spread it across some chairs and made a “tent.” Evan thought that was the greatest thing he’d ever seen. He sat. Laughed. For minutes at a time, he didn’t say a word—he just smiled and clapped his hands. Simple pleasure.
As we get older, why do we think pleasure only comes from things that cost money?
