The Simple Things Challenge

Chris from Enchanted Oak is doing the Simple Things Challenge, an easy way to keep your blessings flowing to Haiti. From her blog:

“Today and Sunday, I’d like to celebrate the simple pleasures of life with you. For each person who participates with a list, a poem, or a prose piece about the joy of simple things, my family will donate $2.00 to Heartline Ministries for their medical clinic and other programs in Haiti. The Heartline Ministries blog by John McHoul will tell you more about what they are doing.

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. Let’s keep those blessings flowing.”

The simple things I love, listed in no particular order:

  • soft blankets
  • hot showers
  • Amoeba’s teasing
  • crisp morning air
  • Market Spice Tea
  • holding Amoeba’s hand
  • hot soup on cold days
  • shared laughter
  • wild flowers
  • bird song

And, of course, my family and friends — including all of you who leave me wonderful and charming comments. My life is truly blessed.


  1. I love your list. Amoeba’s teasing and holding his hand. That is just awesome. Soft blankets and hot showers. can’t be beat. Great cause this is and great list. Have a wonderful Sunday Q 🙂

  2. Wonderful List!
    I’m having trouble getting my computer to respond (I’ve been trying to copy and paste so I could make a post) but if I can get it to behave, I will join in.

  3. I’m right there with you, from the soft blankets to the bird song. Some of my own favorite things. I loved your blog. You made me smile! Thank you for participating in this little simple thing for Haiti. Have a blessed day!

    1. Nessa — that’s what Amoeba and I had for lunch on Thursday. it is one of my favorite things! 😉 (Homemade potato soup is simmering on the stove right now!

    1. Bill, if you don’t do it by midnight PDST, it won’t count for the Haiti effort, but I would like to see your list just the same.
