I have had a few moments this week where I was truly reminded of what is important. I often get caught up in my own head; in my own thoughts. This happens so much that I miss little things around me: a sunset, a smile, or the tiny flowers on the side of the road.
One thing that having children has done for me is this: children see and enjoy the little things. My little one played with a potato bug for an hour last week. She carried it all the way home from the park. She made a little house for it with leaves and dirt and rocks. She truly enjoyed that little bug.
Little things: a hug, a kiss, a smile. These are the things that I am grateful for. These are the things that I must savor.
When I miss the little things, I miss the many small moments that add up to create my life. I am grateful for the little things. I am grateful for all that God has created.
I hope you have a good day!
