The Little Things

Tonight I am thinking about treasuring the little things.  Too often, life feels like a whirlwind.  It's good though, to slow down for a few moments, and appreciate the little things....

A baby grinning just at you, because you are the best thing in their little world.

A little sleepy toddler waking up from his nap and just wanting to be held while he snuggles in a big blanket and sucks his thumb.

Having a real conversation with your spouse, instead of the broken and half-hearted kind that usually occur when little children are around.

Being able to sleep in.

Having time alone to enjoy just one kid.

Being able to read whole chapters of a book without interruption...sometimes even just getting through a whole paragraph is pretty great!

A hug and a kiss.

Watching a good TV show all cuddled on the couch with the one you love.

Good food...that you didn't have to cook!

These are a few things I got to experience today, and it was really, really nice.  Some of those things I would have taken for granted in the past, but I am learning to treasure and value them.
