enjoy the simple things

With having a birthday just a few weeks ago, I started thinking about the simple pleasures in my young life. I fell in love with crochet a couple of years ago, & I could spend hours looking at different designs on Pinterest. I love baking cookies. I love looking up recipes for different kinds of cookies. I feel like my only vices are the same as an elderly grandmother.
But I do not feel alone, being a twenty-something female that is drawn to activities that have been a staple in women's domestic lives for centuries. I have seen it again and again in my day to day life with friends and loved ones, online, & television. May women and girls have a strong desire to use their hands and be creative. It is good for the female soul. Don't be embarrassed to take pleasure in the simple things.
God bless!

She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
                                       Proverbs 31:24

Therefore I perceived that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works,
      for that is his portion; for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
                                         Ecclesiastes 3:22

  1. That's why now that I'm a retired homeschool mom, I'm gonna take pottery classes to learn how to play in the mud.

    That and make more cookies.
