Life's Little Moments

Last Thursday I wrote down another bit of wisdom from the writers 
of The Big Bang Theory:

      “...find meaning in the little moments that make up life.”
          --Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki)

The characters were discussing a deceased colleague, who apparently didn't accomplish great things. Leonard might just have the right idea. We all can't go into space, be as smart as Einstein, cure cancer or save the planet. Life's not solely about the spectacular stuff, even though those dreams and goals are important to us.

The key to a satisfying existence may be recognizing and enjoying little moments, chance encounters, and daily activities.

This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for my awareness of life's little moments.
