It really is the little things in life that keep us going.
The little things that we do,
and the little things that are all around us
that we sometime lose track of.
These little flowers, growing in the garden,
are pretty and they brighten up the space,
but after seeing them a few times, we kind of lose sight of them,
when they get swallowed up by more of what we consider important.
They are just there,
doing what they are supposed to do,
and we have other things to think about.
Pick them and bring them in the house,
put them into a pretty little pitcher,
and all of the sudden
there is a little nosegay on the table
that makes you smile every time you catch sight of it.
Who ever pays attention to old rags?
They are just something to clean with
and then throw out.
When those rags are torn into strips
and wrapped up to form a ball,
they become a piece of art to be enjoyed.
Even when a troublesome weed
has gone to seed,
there is still signs of beauty there
to be admired.
Have you ever looked at a hydrangea
when it wasn't in full bloom?
We tend to notice them when
they are big and colorful, but before they become that,
they should be seen as remarkable.
These tops were originally on a porch railing.
They were cut off and discarded
into a pile of junk by a neighbor,
put out curbside to be gotten rid of.
They appeared to be
nothing short of a true treasure to us.
Oh, the possibilities!
No matter how old you are,
there are always some little things
you never forget...
and there should be more than there are,
we just need to stop and take in everything that is around us and see it for what it is.
A bunch of little things
that make up the whole big picture of life.
Things that seem so inconsequential at times,
should never be taken for granted.
I went out to lunch with my girlfriends last week.
The first time we have been together in over a year.
Sitting across from each other at the table,
even after all this time lost,
seemed so normal, so much the same.
But it wasn't, not at all.
One of us had lost a husband,
I had lost my sister-in-law,
and we had all lost friends.
This is what it is all about
and why it is so important
to take note and remember
all the little things
and how they add up to be bigger
than we ever dreamed they would be.
Spending time with our kids,
a few weeks ago, was a big part of all this
and one thing that made it all possible....
A really important little thing to do
that adds up to be
for us all.
Have a wonderful week...
little things should be left
well enough alone!
