The little things are most often the best things in life. Laughter with friends and family, getting a card in the mail unexpectedly, a smile from a friend, witnessing a random act of kindness from a stranger, watching the sunrise and set, finding a french fry at the bottom of the McDonald’s bag when you thought you had eaten them all, getting a parking spot close to the store when it’s raining, reminiscing about a time long since past because you found something while cleaning that brought back the memory, reading a good book, taking a walk on a spring day, having your favorite song come on the radio while driving in the car, having a memorable conversation and the list goes on and on. Yes it is the little things, the small blessings that make up the story of our lives. Sure we have the monumental moments: graduations, weddings, new jobs, birthdays, promotions, etc. but so often the little things get overlooked and yet they shouldn’t because these are the things that make life beautiful. Every moment both big and small make up your life. These small moments are like God’s love notes to His children. Reminding us that He cares very much of the details and of us. Take some time to reflect on the little moments of your life. You just might be surprised just how big those moments really were.

“It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
