The little things
Friday, November 30, 2012
I'm feeling quite a lot better this evening but still not up to really writing much. So here's another post I wrote a couple of months ago. Enjoy!
It’s all about the little things. The random hug from my teenaged son. A note in my daughter’s daily agenda saying she’s having a good week at school. A friendly message from someone I wasn’t sure if I’d hear from again. Purr therapy from my cat. Realizing I chose the PERFECT shade of blue to paint my dresser. Knowing someone who can find great homes for all these orphaned clothes we’ll never wear again. My Libman Freedom Mop. Slice-o-matic… never will I dice a cucumber with a knife again! A fresh peach dipped into Greek yogurt with honey. Feta. The scale saying 1.5 lbs lighter than the day before. Seeing my girl excited about the book fair at school next week. Baking soda and vinegar. Borax. Being able to put my right hand flat on the floor when I try to do a push-up. OK, that’s not a little thing… it’s HUGE! Wearing those jeans that have been hanging in the bathroom for a month waiting for me to be able to squeeze into them :) Walking the block with my neighbor for a little morning “walk n talk”. Saying goodbye to the kids in the morning. Welcoming them home again in the afternoon. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll bake them some cookies. Beautiful days like today! White, puffy clouds. Opening the windows. Just BEING! I guess the little things really are the big things, aren’t they?
