The Small Things

Today, over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog, the five minute Friday prompt is:  SMALL


The small things really do turn out to be the big things. When I look back on my life, I realize that the big things have changed my life, but it is the daily, small things that continue to make my life what it is. The life I have, the life I enjoy, is because of those small things.

Sitting on the porch swing, sharing time with my husband * Warm chocolate chip cookies * An hour long conversation, on the phone, with my sister * Watching a funny TV show with my daughter, laughing out loud together* Receiving a text message from my son, telling me he loves me…and my mother’s heart overflows * Teaching * The smell of my new “Toasted Marshmallow” candle * A cool morning breeze * Crazy kitten stampedes * Golden sunshine * Cool crisp air * A million diamonds of dew on a mid-August morning * Brushing the horse * Hot showers and feeling clean and fresh * Ice cold water in the heat of the summer

I pray that I never take the small things in life for granted.
