the little things are what do it!


Little things make all the difference.

Whether it is the little thing that brightens your day, or the little thing that trips you up.

We survive and thrive moving from big thing to big thing, without much regard for the little things like sunsets or a friendly smile and a polite manager greeting you at the convenience store when you stop to get a cup of coffee in the morning. We could all stand to enjoy the positive little things, while recognizing the triviality of the negative little things.

Here's to you telling the difference.

Yes **** it is the little things that make our lives so special. Just this morning me and my 2 grandkids were sitting in the grass outside watching chimmney swifts flying in to my chimmney. They were in awe of nature. The birds would fly over the house and just fall into the chimmney.

Yes! Watching the fireworks sober for the first time in years was so much fun. It is the simple pleasures I am enjoying.

That is so true.

Seeing my step son smile with his dimples this morning when we were talking about our camping trip the weekend.

Yep....today I appreciate the little things.
