What would I do without the little things in life?
Small blessings is the cause for great happiness and joy in my life. I know this sounds silly, but I find myself in amazement of the little things I am blessed with in my life each and everyday. I have a list of things I think about and they make me happy like a kid happy over an ice cream cone. I don’t find that I am high maintenance, but the small things make me happy. I like coffee, and having that one cup of coffee every morning puts joy in my heart and a huge smile of awake-ness on my face. I am blessed to go to the store with everything on my list in my basket as I am leaving. Yes, I feel like I have accomplished something great! :) I love to exchange smiles in the store with strangers. It feels great to leave a place with a smile that is remembered throughout the day. I love showers, and that is an understatement. I feel like a new person, with a new clean perspective on life. I love to have fresh clean clothes to wear as I start a new day in a clean outfit. I adore our studio apartment, even though its small, it’s the perfect fit for my husband and I. I have everything at arms length with no complaints. (it’s not that small, but it rhymed so I couldn’t help it.) These things are easily ignored and taken for granted, but I am learning how to live in every moment and take in and appreciate these little things when they come my way. Thank you Papa!
