Day 3 of #LiveWell2017
Sometimes it’s hard to be grateful for the little things. They are easy to overlook or take for granted, not because they aren’t significant, but because they are small or common or occur in the background of our lives. But, those small things can have a great impact on us.
When I walk in the woods or along the shore, I look for the little things – a smooth stone, a shiny bug, a bright leaf, a tiny flower. Sometimes a small thing is the highlight of my walk. Collectively, they add texture and color and beauty to the larger landscape. They are the artistic details that complete the masterpiece.
At home, the little things keep our marriage strong and fresh – a gentle touch, a thank you, an offer to help, a morning kiss, a shared book, a quiet talk in the dark, reading together in silence. In our 37 years together, we still acknowledge and appreciate the little things, and each small act works to strengthen our love. Each small act creates goodness.
What are the little things that you are grateful for?
