“Enjoy the little things in life…..
….. for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things”
We’re all so busy just getting through our days of work, child-rearing and home care that we rarely stop to smell the roses anymore. Sometimes, though, some normal everyday thing will happen that catches our attention for once and we stop to smile.
Barb invited her readers to think of a list of their own “little things” that make them smile to share and I promised to think about it. Here’s my list Barb!
-watching the sun rise. I’m usually heading off to work when the sun is coming up and not quite awake but, sometimes I look up at just the right time and bask in that early morning light on my face.
-my first tea of the morning
-my kids’ dimples
-watching my cat try to stretch herself out thin enough to lie on the baseboard heater (it’s really a process!)
-a fresh layer of snow on the landscape
-Sunday morning listening to the Trivia Show on CJAD (Montreal radio station) with my tea and Facebook games.
-the feel of a new book in my hands
-dancing all by myself in my living room to my favourite music
-singing in my horribly off-tune voice while doing the above; hence the reason for doing it alone
-my co-worker’s laugh when she finds something amusing; you absolutely can’t help but laugh with her.
-finding money in my coat pocket when I thought I had none.
-a phone call from a friend
-the smell of baking bread
-a hug from somebody who I love
None of these things are BIG when taken by themselves but, added up, they make life better
