It's the Little Things...

Like new magazines that arrive in the mail...




Waking up and realizing I have another hour before the alarm goes off... snuggling in as I hear rain pattering on the roof and a soft rumble of thunder in the distance.

My husband bringing me coffee & the funny papers to me while I am still in bed.

A family gathered around my patio table, belly laughing as we celebrate Mother's Day

A text from a friend to tell me to have a good day & that she loves me...

A robin building a nest near my front porch

Bubble Gum...

Linking up to Chatting at the Sky as well as my friend Christy

Thanks for reminding me that the little things are really the big things that matter!

Love,

Kristen,

Isn't it amazing how giving thanks in the small stuff, our hearts become big in our Praises to God for them? Lovingly, Yolanda

Like being able to run 4 miles when I'd rather not... knowing that I will feel better after it's over, keeps me to it.

I love the simple pleasures of life. The key is taking the time to see them and take them in.

I just told my daughter, Emily, that the day the new In Style arrives in the mail is one of the happiest days of the month. Here's to enjoying the little things!
