Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

I like most all kinds of music, including 'modern' country music. And one of our VERY favorite artists is Brad Paisley. We went to Knoxville last year to Brad's concert which was MARVELOUS!!! One of my favorite songs of his is one entitled, "Ain't Nothin' Like." Here are some of the words:
This old world is full of simple pleasures
They're all good but some are better
Ain't nothin' like finding that woman (man)
That you know you're gonna love for the rest of your life
And ain't nothin' like knowing the Lord's a comin'
Back one day to make you want to do right
Ain't nothin' like watchin' a bunch of young'ns
Run screamin' through the sprinkler in their little bare feet
And ain't nothin' like finding twenty dollars
In the pocket of the britches that you wore last week
Ain't nothin' like throwing a hula popper
Draggin' it across a spot a big 'un oughta be
And ain't nothin' like having him for supper
With some good hush puppies and some sweet iced tea
If you haven't heard this song, you need to listen to it! There is so much meaning in the simple things in life. For instance, what is better than seeing a Proud Papa with his baby girl? The picture above is me with my Daddy--taken back in 1942.
Also, there 'ain't nothin' like' waking up early in the morning hearing the Cardinals outside my window 'chipping' for their breakfast. There 'ain't nothin' like' seeing a gorgeous sunset, or walking in the woods and turning the corner only to see and hear a beautiful waterfall. It's just the simple things in life which are so important.
