Simple Pleasure - Sitting in the Sun

Only a person from Wisconsin, or some other area of the world with frozen tundra, can truly appreciate a warm summer day.  This past winter in particular seemed extra long.  So when you finally get a gorgeous day like today, you just want to soak it all in.  In my dad's final weeks before he died, he asked quite often for us to put his wheelchair outside in the sun.  He would close his eyes and say, "Oh that feels so good."  I love how my dad could appreciate such a simple pleasure during those last difficult days.  Here's to hoping it is sunny in your part of the world.  If it is - take a moment to enjoy it.
