Simplicity is not complicated when I fulfill my roles as mother, wife, sister, and daughter by keeping things to the simplest denominator.
How do We Achieve Simplicity?
Simplifying confuses in its approach. Sometimes we complicate the world we live in with too many choices or not enough.
Christ lived in perfect simplicity: guided by the Holy Spirit, surrounding himself with trusted friends (even though he knew one destined to betray him.)
Flowers, trees, nature equates with simplicity.
Time spent with family in fun and and enjoyment brings us back to the basics.
Simple family ties compare with the important, valued, and basic needs of life.
We overthink life. We complicate it and get lost in intricacies.
Just tonight, I worried my husband about money and we travelled on a miscommunication tangent.
He leaves for New Orleans in the morning for a company trip. I miss him already.
If push come to shove, life simplifies on a dime of tragedy, driving home what really matters: not money or things.
The simple things have a common denominator: love of God, family, friends, and home. What we cannot do without is God and each other. That is simplicity at its purest.

Simplicity’s trademarks involve laughter and joy of riding the wind, hand in hand, enjoying the purest times of love. The sun rises each morning, and I breathe in the sounds and the beauty of my home and family.
My sweet daughter sings with joy, laughs with the innocence of youth, cares deeply, and desire love and approval.
My husband basic drive leads him to love, care, and devotion to his family.
Memories of brothers guarding and standing up for a sister blend into the simple portrait. A younger sister prays for her older sister’s success.
While, the recipient of all this attention, me, focuses on God, loving my husband, caring for my daughter, praying for my mother and her husband and my sisters and brothers.
