It’s the feel of the soft, purring vibration of a cat napping on your lap.
It’s the sound of your nephew’s laughter as he plays in the surf on a beach day.
It’s the ring of laughter as friends come together to celebrate a milestone birthday.
It’s the inhalation of crisp, clean air on a mountain hike.
It’s dancing around the living room with abandon to a favorite 80s tune.
It’s the sweaty satisfaction of giving your all during a tough workout.
It’s the joy of an unexpected phone call from a childhood friend.
It’s sending messages to your significant other across a crowded room with only a smile.
It’s getting caught in a warm summer rain shower and not running for cover.
It’s relaxing by the pool, forgetting about the workweek grind and enjoying the simple pleasure of watching the kids show off their cannonballs and dives.
It’s in making the time for your passions and pursuing them without reserve.
It’s the instant comfort issued by a hand placed on your back in silent support.
It’s in surveying the scene around you and exhaling slowly, knowing you are exactly where you want to be.
No, it isn’t the things that fill our lives and make us rich. It’s the people who surround us and share our days. It’s the sights and sounds that fill our ears and our eyes. It’s the feeling of the “feels” that gives us a wealth that money never could. It isn’t the things. It’s everything but the things.
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and a full, happy week ahead! Cheers! Karen
