Real Simple

True Wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by.
E.S. Bontan

Real Simple [life made easier] asked this question:
What is the best thing money can’t buy?”

Real Simple readers sent in these answers.

A great night’s sleep
A husband who truly listens
A loving hug.
An unexpected apology
A good photograph
The unconditional love of a dog
Solitude
Watching my boyfriend dance his own dance while he’s cooking dinner
Being born to parents who really loved their children
The way you feel after a hard-core workout
The sensation of graduation from nursing school at the age of 40
Hearing “Mom, you’re beautiful” from your child
The peace of mind that comes from knowing you are living within your means
Good humor
Sand
Friends
Forgiveness
…the tiny, little kicks and pokes I am feeling daily…last month of first pregnancy
Memories
A smile
My students
A house full of soundly sleeping children
The ability to take a step back and appreciate the world around me
Self-confidence
Faith
Good manners and good grammar
The sound of my husband’s car in the driveway
A first kiss
A wife who is also your best friend
The wit of children
The tears of joy that flow when you see your loved one for the first time after a deployment to Iraq
Inner peace

The legendary Texas songwriter Guy Clark said it best; “Two things that money can’t buy, that’s true love and homegrown tomatoes.

Psalms 13:6
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Psalms 116:7
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Trust God for your Day, Today.
