The simple things remind us of all we have to be thankful for. This little cup and saucer set is one that I bought a couple years ago, but it reminds me of something old and a much simpler time... these might be cups like our grandma's would have used to serve their coffee to friends and family. I rarely think to use them, but when I do, my coffee seems a little more special to me. Fall seems to be the time of year when I start thinking "simple, simple, simple." Generations before us did not have nearly the "things" that we have now, but I truly believe they were much happier with their simple lifestyles and slower pace of life. Joy comes from God and when we experience that kind of joy, we can really start to appreciate the simple things in life.
