When I was a young teenager I remember hearing the song "I LOVE" by Tom T. Hall and I've loved it ever since.  I make a habit of listening to it every so often just to remind me that some of the most simple things in my life are FREE...

I hope you'll take a listen!  Just turn your sound on and SMILE BIG!!!

Life is GREAT!
 I love little baby ducks
 Old pick-up trucks
  Slow-moving trains
  And rain!
I love little country streams
    Sleep without dreams
    Sunday School in May
 And hay!

And I love you too.

I love leaves in the wind
Pictures of my friends
 Birds in the world
 And squirrels!

I love coffee in a cup
Little fuzzy pups

Old TV Shows
  And snow!

And I love you too.

I love honest open smiles
 Kisses from a child
 Tomatoes on the vine
And onions!

I love winners when they cry
 Losers when they try
 Music when it's good
and life!

And I love you too!

May you be a blessing to someone in your life today.
You ALL are a blessing to me.  Thank you for always sharing your heart with mine...

Love to you...
