It's the little things in life...

that bring us such joy. A kind gesture, a compliment, a smile, a pretty flower, a new haircut, a hug, a pat on the back, etc. There are small things in nature that make me smile, as well. Colorful art and flowers make me smile.

I stumbled across a note in my drawer at work yesterday from my daughter that is nearly 16 now and it read, Mom hope you are enjoying your day, I love you, Alexandra. How sweet is that! She had packed me a lunch and tossed it in, just like I did when her and her brother were little.

Anyway, I found what looked to be like a dragonfly on my inlaws deck during a visit during his illness, and I like to think of these as small signs of love and that we are being watched over. Call me crazy , but that's just me. My inlaws had not noticed it in the 5 years they had lived there. It could be that I have an observant eye. I look for the good stuff.
Sorry this is so long, but I am wishing for you the small joys in life and the eye to capture them.

Have a lovely Saturday!
