Walk in wild flowers. Walk under the stars. Think about someone you love. Laugh out loud. Laugh until your tummy hurts. Light a candle. Bake a chocolate cake. Eat a big slice. Talk with a friend. Find child-like wonder in the everyday. Swim in the ocean. Feel sand on your skin. Feel sun on your face. Dance when no one is looking. Dance when everyone is looking. Smell jasmine and lavender and pine trees. Hold hands with someone you love. Watch the sunrise. Sit by a window and watch the world. Listen to falling rain. Sit in a bath of bubbles. Lie in a feathery duvet. Bless somebody on purpose. Bless somebody in secret. Sit in the moonlight. Take time to play. Breathe deeply. Be still. Be grateful. Be inspired.

  7. I have my own backyard again… Watching the sun shine through the treetops as I sip my morning coffee… Finding small wonders in dew drops and fireflies…Sitting on the back porch under the canopy of trees while the sun is setting… Ending the day with a bubbly bath while lavender and eucalyptus oils help to soothe my mind…

    Thank you for helping me to see the beautiful little moments of inspiration in my day. Love you, Birg. Thanks for emailing…

  8. So beautiful Michelle, sounds absolutely idyllic.
    Moments as small evidences of His love :)
