Remember the Little Things

It is day 19 of the 30 minus 2 days of writing hosted by Nicky and Mike of We Work For Cheese. Today's prompt is "Little Things".  Visit Nicky's post for a little more of this and that.


Unlike the big events in our lives, your sweet 16 birthday, first job, once in a lifetime vacation, or the new sports car, it is the little things that add up to form our lives.

So revel in a beautiful sunset with someone you love, or laugh or cry at a good movie.  Savor the taste of ice cream on a hot summer day, or a steaming cup of coffee to ward off the cold.  Watch a butterfly gathering nectar from a flower or a puppy frolicking in the grass.  These are the moments that make up our lives. 

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. - Robert Brault

  1. It's interesting that as I get older, I enjoy the little things far more than I want any big things.

  4. Very true - I think when I was younger it was a lack of patience that kept me from enjoying the little things.

  7. The older I get, the less I need... it's so true. Just give me the little courtesies and I'm great!

  8. I have to agree with everyone else- as you get older you really don't need as much...

  9. There is enough coffee in that tanker to ward off a blizzard! The words you wrote are very true.

  10. Best coffee on the interstate! I WOULD FOLLOW THAT TRUCK TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTRY!!!

  11. If I were holding a pint, I'd raise it high and call out, "Here, here!"

    But I don't have a pint. I have carbonated mineral water. Anyhow, I agree with you all the same.

  12. That quote are filled with words I try my best to live by, because they are so true. A very valuable lesson to learn.

    Thanks for the reminder, Linda. :-)

  14. This is a point well taken. It is easy to skip over the "little things." Yet, they are what help us in our day-to-day lives.

    Little things for me this week:

    Laughing at how my cat likes to follow me around the bed when I make it.

    watching a tiny finch walk in wonder across my ice-coated bird bath

    a nice email from a friend that made me smile...

    Perfect reminder and I loved how you blended the prompt with the quote in your writing:~)
