Simple Pleasure Link Up

Lola Irene Rhodes-my Granny, and one of the most amazing women I have ever met. It was an honor having her as my Granny. My mom would agree. She died when I had just turned 19, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her (I am now 36).

After my grandfather died, her husband (who was equally amazing), I got to go to their lakehouse in East Texas and get what I wanted to keep. I am so thankful for that. I have little memories around my house now that remind me daily of her.

One such special thing are her rocks. Well, they are really colored glass, but I always called them rocks. Every time they would go on vacation, she would buy a new one. The minute I showed up at the lake house, I would immediately go to her rock collection, which was quite large, and see if I could pick out the new one. I so treasured this little game so naturally, I wanted to keep some of the rocks. I was always so amazed by the colors of the glass. They now sit on a shelf on my front porch where I can see them when I sit on my couch inside.

It's a view full of memories, and my simple pleasure!

Those are simple TREASURES as well as simple pleasures. You must be able to see her face and hear her voice every time you see them.

What a wonderful simple pleasure...and since I had a East Texas grandmother I know she was also a treasure.
