It’s the little things

I have had a series of days that have been less than good. Not really bad, but definitely  not good.

And sometimes on the less than good days I have to think about the things that make me smile.  Usually they end up being the smallest things in the world.  Things I am grateful and thankful and really blessed to be able to smile at.

  • Walking in the door from work, seeing my two favorite people in the world – one small and one big – and just smiling because I belong to them.
  • Walking in the door to MY HOUSE. One that I worked really hard to get.
  • Seeing the sun shine.
  • Seeing clouds in the sky, looking up at them and finding what shapes they make. One of my favorite pastimes.
  • Knowing that every morning around 7:15 my sister will call. And we will talk on my way to work and her way home from work.
  • The way Gianna talks. It is adorable. She can be saying NO MAMEEE and I still think it’s cute and smile at her.
  • The fact that i miss my husband during the day.
  • When I have on a cute outfit.
  • When I have on cute shoes.
  • Coffee.
  • Fruit.
  • Seeing an elderly couple holding hands, holding doors for one another etc.
  • Holding the door for someone. Or having them hold the door for me.
  • Saying thank you.

There are always things, even on the worst of the worst days, that make me smile.  Maybe it’s because I truly do not like being grumpy or maybe it’s because honestly no day is THAT bad that you can’t smile at least once.
