I was once told that it isn’t the huge, overly planned and expensive things that matter so much, but all the small, little, seemingly insignificant things that matter most. As I reflect on that idea this morning, I again see the truth in those words. Thank you to those who have given what seem like small things, because on cool, damp, rainy mornings like this one, I am reminded again that they really do mean everything.A hug held a little longer than needed A smile A kiss on my forehead as I wake each morning The bed made each day while I shower An email with just the four letters TGIF A card left under my pillow A ‘thank you’ for dinner made Clean sheets Standing when I leave the table Notes left on a white board Whispered good mornings A warm fire on a cool evening Never leaving without saying “I Love You” Unexpected lunch invitations A yard I am proud of Standing around the kitchen island sharing drinks and story Laughter after a long week Spur of the moment Sunday cocktails Taking my hand when we walk Opening the door no matter how awkward it seems Helping me on with my coat…every time Always offering my chair first Listening Thursday lunches Family dinners Plans for holidays
There really are No Little Things. There are only things that remind us every day that we are loved and I am so blessed to have so many in my life that give so many ‘little things’.
