    This morning everything's okay.

    Dads making egg sandwiches for the family and the stepmoms still relaxing in bed. One of my brothers are sleeping while the other takes care of my niece and nephew who are finally not throwing up from their virus yesterday. Things are good things are normal and I will appreciate...

    having a day where I was in my own world, thinking about life and I was feeling down. My 14 year old son was getting something out of the fridge and he looked over at me and said "I love you Mom" it was an out of the blue moment and made me feel like I was doing something right...

    Like hot coffee and warm smiles on a Saturday

    morning when I have to work. You wouldn't think it'd make that big of a difference, but it makes the difference between a day of bitterness and yawns, verses one with laughter and friendship at work.

    Life Is What You Make Out Of It

    Leaving a couple minutes early

    for work and ending up in the part of the morning commute that is in between traffic rushes. Arriving at work to find the office completely empty and silent. Easily ruined once I see the first person pulling into the lot and realize I have to put my pants back on.

    Being alone. Strolling through a busy Parisian

    market. A good meal. Beautiful music. Little things that contributed to making today a perfect day. I was happy today. It was nothing extraordinary, just a collection of perfect little moments. I was happy because I took the time to savor each one, to appreciate each tiny...

    A Flower, A Rainbow, A Butterfly

    There are so many little things that cost nothing but make the day look brighter. A small flower, that grows in an unusual place, a chat with a stranger about this and that, a rainbow shower and then the sun comes out and paints the most enchanting rainbow or even double rainbow...

    Little things. Life is just a series of little

    things. The difference between happiness and sadness, between caring and not caring, between love and hate, they are all just little things.

    Waking up with your mate

    before sunrise and cuddling until you hear your alarm. I love when we both wake up super early, at the same time and we did not plan it.

    As nice as it would be,

    I do not feel that I need to be wealthy and own a big house and lots of material possessions to be happy. I find far greater pleasure and joy in having a nice meal with my folks, a coffee and good conversation with friends, going for a nice stroll in the local woods, admiring a...

    I make a list...everyday.

    I appreciate .. - the moment I woke up - that I'm alive. That's not a really a little thing, is it? I do wish more people will have that moment of self awareness as they wiggle their toes, stretch their arms over their heads like a cat...as they open their eyes to the sunlight...

    Little Things In Life

    There's a tiny plant with what looks to be a small flower growing out of the crack in the concrete. If that isn't a metaphor or inspiration for "keep going" then I don't know what is. Something that small let me know there's a bigger picture at work here. Even the smallest...

    I have never been a "material" type of person.

    Yes, it is nice to have the things in life that we need...........but I also believe in order to enjoy them, there has to be some degree of sacrifice and work to get what you need. Having things "handed to you" or taking what others have worked for, is wrong. Some of the most...

    I love the little things in life .

    the little things in life don't cost much. when you start to expect them is when everything's to fall apart. remember small things like a simple thank you or an I love you. hold hands to the person you love its just a simple touch and a remembrance of your love. a simple kiss at...

    Putting the car in neutral

    when you're stopped in front of a crosswalk and revving the engine as people walk in front of you. If you forget to put it in neutral: please visit the "I'm Not Perfect" or "I've Done Things That I Regret" experiences.

    It's going to be a good day.

    It always is whenever I wake up that one minute before my alarm is supposed to to go off and I can turn it off in time to avoid hearing that cursed noise.
