Enjoy Little Things


You might not realize it or take the time to notice, but the little things in life are special. A hug, a smile, or a kind word can make someone's day. Watching the sun rise or set, seeing a hummingbird feed, walking in a field of wildflowers, hearing rain on your roof. The breeze in your hair, the delicate smell of a rose, the call of a whippoorwill, the lapping of waves on the beach. Sitting on the porch, cooking a simple meal, sharing a peaceful moment with someone you love. A glass of wine, a favorite movie, a good book. So many images, scents, tastes, sounds, and feelings come to mind. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, think about what brings you joy.
Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.” ~ Frank Howard Clark
