My Simple, Quiet Life: When A Stethoscope Isn't Hanging On My Neck


     Like many of you I LOVE WEEKENDS!  While I love travelling and seeing new places I  also love simply staying at home, fixing our rooms, lying on foam memory and vacuuming afterwards and my favorite chore of all is manually washing clothes and having them dry under the bright sky.





     We live at the neck of the woods where the air is fresh and dawn is announced by the chirping of birds and crowing of roosters. Ours is a tiny house upon a hill where I spend most of my time daydreaming of heaven and its doors. I am honestly one of those people who are happiest in simplicity.

     It is rainy season on my side of the world now and believe me, that porch isn't as clean as it looks in reality.

     ...because we share our home with our dogs and cats and ducks and goats you will find mud scattered here and there yet it makes my simple life complete with the melody of my kids' laughter and the love of my king....

     At night I could watch the stars and talk to the moon and each morning the sun would greet me...


     What do I think of each waking morning?
I am thankful for LIFE, for the gift of FAMILY and FRIENDS....


 and the chance to be of service to mankind and the rest of creation....

  2. We have the same thought every morning. The first thing I think of whenever I wake up is gratitude for having great friends and a wonderful family <3

  5. I think I would really like to live in a place such as yours. You look so happy and contented and that is what living is all about. Your first image though made me smile because it reminded me of an ad for laundry soap and the simple joys of life.

  6. Hindi ka nag-iisa Sis. I too prefer simplicity and your place is a picture of my 'dream place'except wala atang brook or stream dyan. Sis, God is good to those who loves Nature.

  10. You have a beautiful place Sis :-) I also love to dry my clothes outside when the weather permits. It saves electric at the same time helps the environment as well. I love your place, it looks peaceful too :-)
