Every month I chronicle those ordinary delights that give me comfort or offer a place of reflection or joy. Here are my everyday delights for August:

1. These magnets: These tiny magnets serve as a daily reminder to remember what is important. Think of others, scatter sunshine, forget self, expect little, give much and live simply are wise words – Having these small, but meaningful sayings help ground me on what is important.


2. Stillness: Bothered by restlessness, I am actively seeking moments to pause. I try to spend several seconds focusing on quiet and sinking into the present. Last week, after exiting a grocery store, I caught this view of the trees. The landscape vibrated with one word: stillness.



3. Book of the Month Membership: If you are an avid reader, the BOTM is worth the money. Every month 5 judges select a single book to recommend. Members can pick one hardcover book for the membership price and add on additional books for $9.99 each. It’s a great membership to gift to friends and family who love reading books regularly.


4.Coldplay Concert: I adore concerts and Coldplay is one of my favorite bands to see live. Chris Martin always gives his all to his performances and his band members complement him well. I loved listening to Coldplay sing Fix You, Yellow and A Sky Full of Stars.
