Simple Gifts: Embracing Simplicity

Simple Gifts: Embracing Simplicity – (Taken from Simple Abundance – A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, by Sarah Ban Breathmach)

“When we appreciate how much we have, we feel the urge to pare down, get back to basics, and learn what is essential for our happiness. We long to realize what’s really important.”

‘Tis a gift to be simple,

‘Tis a gift to be free,

‘Tis a gift to come down

Where we ought to be

And when we find ourselves

In the place that’s right

‘Twill be in the valley

Of love and delight

 -Nineteenth-Century Shaker hymn
