    This may sound silly,

    but last night I was standing at the sink washing dishes. I was feeling a little tired and kind of spacing out. The only thought I recall going through my head was that one of these days I need to get the dishwasher looked at. I kept smelling flowers. I had forgotten about the...

    Life is like blanket too short you pull it up

    and your toes rebel,you yank it down and shiver meander about your shoulder;but cheerful folks manage to draw their knees up and pass a very comfortable night

    I stopped for lunch today

    and when I unwrapped my straw and tried to blow the wrapper off, it brought back memories. My kids would always pelt me with their straw wrappers whenever we went out to eat. It's those silly little small things I miss. Cherish every moment because life passes us by so quickly.

    I've been spending quite a bit of time,

    here lately, with my chiropractor, after a very frustrating back injury during yoga class. While Dr. M is a sizzling hot man, whose hands on my lower vertebrae make me weak in the knees, the most exciting part of my appointments with him are during "check out," when I stealthily...

    "Honey, I like it when we talk

    before we go to sleep. It's a good way to complete my day." It's the little things that we appreciate that could make us a happier person.

    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.

    I don't get to talk to her much,

    I don't get to see her, I don't get the luxury of having her in my arms when I fall asleep at night, I don't get to see the twinkle in her eyes when I give her what she need, I don't know what it feels like to have her heart beating next to mine nor feel her warm breath against...

    There are fewer things in life

    that give me more pleasure than to be sat round the table with between one and three friends or relatives, having a good laugh and decent conversation over a nice dinner. Such occasions always seem to be over way too quickly, but I love it while they last.

    A Flower, A Rainbow, A Butterfly

    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...

    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...

    The little things and simple things are take

    for granted by most it appears. Im not like that I enjoy cherish and value the simple little things in life. Simple and little things people say or do are mostly taken for granted and not appreciated, Well ill never take for granted and will always appreciate.

    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...

    What is love? I know what it is

    and it is mighty beautiful. I'm in love with the idea of love but I'm not quite good at it darling. It seems like I've been doing things wrong for a while now. Love isn't about how many times you two have said I love you. It's not even about the big times you two shared together...

    available today, we overlook the awesomeness of the classic Lay's Potato chip. That thin crisp of golden goodness. It is buried by other chips like Dorito's, Cheeto's, funyons, & all that other crap. We need to remember our roots. Next time your at the gas station, grab a bad of...
