    A Smile, a Light Kiss On the Forehead........

    A phone call just to say you were thinking about me. A flower picked. A dream shared. I love to go for drives to nowhere. Spend a cool spring day just walking in nature & holding hands. I appreciate the small things because for me......they mean the most. :)

    At times when life gets hectic

    and full of problems, it feels inevitable that I sideline all the small things I appreciate around me. It takes me a vacation overseas, without any contact with school mates or anything to do with troublesome matters that helps open my eyes to all the happiness around me. Being...

    This guy I know from my homeroom in middle

    school goes to my high school. We haven't spoken for the last 8 months, but see each other every day. Today, we had to do sign ins for track. He was in charge of it. I went up and he said he already got me and smiled. Everyone else had to go up and get themselves signed in. I...

    Tiny Stuff

    We had our first hard frost this week, and I was stunned by the beauty of it. Each and every leaf was limned in silver, as my breath swirled off to join the fog piled all around.  There's a sharp smell that goes with frost, and it mingled with the scent of early morning.As I...

    sunny weather and a blue sky, scarce here, is enough a friend a prospect a little thing to do a cigarette a drink to wake up and smile for no reason to give, to get a gentle word to see something to hear something very well known as if it was for the first time the moment...

    I have always been grateful

    for the small things, the intricacies in life. I still find it fascinating how the teensy tiny things can be thought of to be made for bigger things to be made then function or work. Parts that go into making an engine, then that engine goes with other things made from smaller...

    The Little Things Count

    I love the little acts of service that we give and receive each day.  Holding a door ope, getting me a coffee, running a bath, washing my back, brushing my hair.  A homemade bracelet from my granddaughter, a drawing, a card.  All these little things make life worth living!
