Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors

I am not a Queen or a Princess, I don't live in a castle, a mansion or a cottage at the Cape.

I haven't won gold medals, or blue ribbons, and certainly not a beauty contest. This is my life and I am so grateful..........

To have God in my life

To still be in love with the boy I married 45 years ago

Married couple

To look into my children's eyes and see my babies grown into adulthood with families and terrific lives of their own.

To be hugged by my Grandchildren and they aren't embarassed even with their friends around

To hear music and dance as if know one is watching

To watch the tree tops sway in the wind

To stand on a frozen lake all alone and breathe in the cold and listen to the icy stillness of the night

To watch the flowers slowly poke up from the spring's warm earth and unfold their petals upward to reach the sun                                          


To hear the birds fill the days with song, then when evening comes, listen to a chorus of frogs announce the arrival of spring

To watch the river slowly travel by while dragon flies quietly skim the surfaceriver

To feel the warmth of the sun on my face, the feel of grass between my toes, and the smell of a summer shower

To stare up at the stars and dream of faraway places, or see familiar objects in the clouds

To hear waves rushing up to the shore in the Gulf and walk barefoot in the sand



For the smell of wood smoke on a crisp October evening

To thrill at winter's first snowflake pirouetting to the ground

And to joyfully remember my parents and to thank them for the wonderful childhood they gave me

Beautiful thoughts presented most eloquently.  Sounds to me that, like myself, you love to count your blessings in life and give credit to Whom credit is due!

Kathy & Lori, Thank you for commenting. Sometimes we feel our lives are not what we planned or that we have nothing going for us, but when we sit down and start making out a list, it is somewhat of a surprise isn't it.

It's the simple things in life that means so much.  God is so good.
