    Why Is It That He Doesn't See That?

    I love my hubby very much, but often times, I feel less like we are a married couple, and more like we are each other's parents. For those of you who can't make sense of that, we both have our child-like ways, and adult-like ways. It just so happens that the way in which we are...

    Little Things Are Way Better

    The big stuff like being materialistic doesn't mean much in my eyes.  I'm more into the smaller things that life has to offer.  Like a smile, a nice gesture to someone, being there for someone when they need us the most and vice-versa.  Happiness, love...

    My Dad Showed Me

    When I was a teenager my Dad used to do little things for me. I couldn't ride the bus home after school, so I would walk the two miles home (I got kicked off for the school year for fighting as a freshmen and from then I had no interest in riding it again). He would do whatever...

    Still Finding Those Little Things

    Yes, I believe it. Those little things, the ones you think no one notices, that don't mean that much. Yep...those, most often, are the ones remembered. Remembering that its a cup of black coffee to start the day, after that add any creamer you want. Silly things..like my...

    Enjoy The Little Things

    Those little things, the ones you think no one notices, that may not mean much to someone else but mean the world to me. Those are the little things that are remembered the most. It's in the glances he gives me. The way he knows what's going on in my mind before I do at times...

    Small Things Add Up

    Looking at the big pictures in life can give me a headache.  Why not look at the simple things?  The small things are more enjoyable.  For example, do not look at this story, look at the dot above the 'I's."  Dream big, of course, but enjoy the small...

    ... So very true, all it takes is just one

    small gesture of kindness to make a difference to someone's life. You will never know how something so simple as a quick hello or a smile could change that person's whole out look for the day. I know that is the case for me. So please don't just think about doing it act upon...

    The best advice anyone has ever given me

    when my world was falling apart, I was so lost in my own pain. I knew I had to pull myself together I just didn't know how. My Mother said to me “start with the little things and the big things will fall into place by itself” I didn't understand the wisdom behind those...
