Joy in "the Little Things"

by | Dec 1, 2008 | Bill, just for fun

This is something so little, but now and also at the time, it meant the world to me. This may seem so insignificant to share on my blog, but I like to find joy in the little things of life…and need to appreciate the little things more often.

Friday was an emotional day for me. A few things happened that day that moved me to tears…I was a little overwhelmed with life, and joy was the farthest thing from my mind.

Later that evening, I was working in my office, finishing up a few things, as Bill and the kids were upstairs in front of the fire in the fireplace. As I was ready to call it a night, a little exhausted, Bill opened up my office door with a plate in his hand. On the plate was a S’mores treat! Here upstairs, Bill and the kids roasted marshmallows over the fire in the fireplace, made S’mores, and he thought to bring one down to me. I don’t think he realized how much I needed that right then. Those “little things” like that bring me such joy. That was probably the best-tasting S’more I’ve ever had!

So, Bill, when you read this…thank you again for bringing down that small treat that brought me so much joy! šŸ™‚

Today, let’s look for the “little things” in our lives and for the joy that they bring!
