Simple Pleasures Can Bring Happiness

Simple Pleasures Can Bring Happiness

I love when people come into my life who help me become a better person.  Andy has an aunt with Down Syndrome who lives with his parents down in Manti, Utah.  She’s the sweetest little thing, and I always love when we can visit her because she reminds me how simple pleasures can bring happiness.  She spends most of her day coloring and doing activity books.  Seeing the joy she gets out of this simple but enjoyable activity makes me realize how little we all need in life.

Last week Andy was able to stop by and see her and his parents while he was working down there.  When Andy was getting ready to leave, his aunt asked him if he could bring her a magazine next time.  She loves looking at all the pictures in them, so we are saving any catalogs that come in the mail so she can see the Halloween and Christmas decorations.  It’s a little thing we can do to make her happy!

How are you enjoying Autumn where you are?  We took a drive up the canyon on Sunday, and we’ve already missed the peak of leaf changes.  Somehow it’s only September, but it’s already over…it makes me so sad!  The image above was taken last year because most of the color is already gone this year.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Have a great week!
