It’s the Little Things


It really is the little things that make me happy or brighten my day or bring a smile to my face. Remember that song from The Sound of Music…”A Few of My Favorite Things”? Well today I want to share with you a few of MY favorite things…
-the color yellow
-the warmth of sunshine on my skin
-fresh cut flowers
-the sound of the ocean waves breaking on the shore
-puppies and kittens
-my dog, Nike
-experiencing something or someplace new with someone I love
-thunderstorms at night while I’m going to sleep
-the smell of clean laundry
-really good coffee
-the music from a cello
-the way my bed feels after I’ve been staying in a hotel for the past 10 days
-the scent of a lily
-a really good laugh with someone I love

What do you love? What brings a smile to your face or puts a twinkle in your eye? It’s good to know…because life gets heavy sometimes and these simple things come in handy!

One thought on “It’s the Little Things

  1. I love how bright the days are in Florida; the smell of my house when I come home; the sound of waves breaking on the shore; the way my children fit in a hug; knowing my children are happy; thunderstorms; gusting wind; the color of new green leaves in Spring; going to bed right after I have put clean sheets on; the smell of Earl Grey Tea, Rose Petal Tea, spice tea; laughing; thinking about Heaven; the smell of new books; the way the page feels as I caress it; the smell of a baby right after it is bathed and in its jammies; the smell of a hardware store, the music of a cello; being with my family; watching the earth from the window of a plane; my longtime friends – old books and my new friends – new books.

    I have a lot for which to be thankful. Praise the Lord!
