And Margaret Thatcher died! Now I’m not much for politicians. Anyone who has followed my writing knows that fact. However, I will make an exception for the Iron Lady. There was something about her that I admired, and even now I might have a hard time telling you what that was. Character? Toughness? Committed to principles? I don’t know exactly, but I instantly liked her and have ever since.
Two people who have very little to do with Living Simple. Why am I writing about them? I guess I’m just feeling a bit nostalgic today after seeing their names in the news. Don’t get me wrong….I love my life! There can be no doubt, however, that life was simpler several decades ago. Technology has made things speed up and technology has, in a way, made life more complicated and demanding.
This weekend we bought nine little chicks for our backyard. No big deal by any means, but holding those little birds reminded me of how precious life is, and how there is wonder in the simplest of things. I do not need the latest gadgets to find inspiration. I do not need the latest gadget to find amusement, entertainment or thrills. All I need to do is pay $3 for a little chick and then sit back and watch the wonder of life.
That is called getting great value for your buck!
