I love simplicity. Living in the country does that for me. I like to walk out my door and breathe in the deep, filling my lungs with crisp, clean air. I enjoy taking leisurely walks on the road in front of my home, as my children race ahead on their bicycles.
I treasure being able to have my windows open at night and hearing the tree frogs singing, the hoot owls hooting, and the crickets serenading me to sleep.
I accept with gratitude the blessing of being able to walk out my door and pick quart upon quart of wild black raspberries that grow along the edges of the grass field.
I enjoy hanging up the laundry on a warm summer day, taking it down when its dry, burying my nose in the warm, sun dried fabric, and inhaling the fresh, crisp scent of summer.
To me country living is simplicity.
