Saturday morning I awoke to the sound of rain. It wasn't a hard rain but a light shower. Just enough to pitter-patter on my awnings. It was a soft sound. A pleasing sound. One that of late in our area of California has been rarely heard due to the long standing drought situation. Because of this any rain of any type or duration is cause for notice and thankfulness! It doesn't matter if it's a little or a lot (although we do need a LOT!) whenever this occurs I try to give a little “thank you” to God for it.
It was still early. The bedroom was mostly dark with early morning light just starting to peek through the blinds. The chill kept me in my bed with covers pulled up and eyes closed. I remained there listening to the sound and gave myself time to adjust to the day and I gave thanks. A few simple words from my heart and it only took a few seconds.
So often we take the simple things for granted like rain or fresh air or even the fact that we woke up and were granted another day on the earth. Whether you believe in a Higher Power or not it's never a bad thing to be mindful and thankful for the simple things of life.
Simple recipes make me happy too. These little bites are a cinch to make yet their flaky layers make it look like you spent hours in the kitchen. I'm thankful that Simple Sausage Rolls can be my little secret I can share with you!
