I've also noticed that it's the little things that have great potential for bringing us blessing---that is if we aren't too preoccupied to notice. Yet all too often we wait for the spectacular while overlooking the wonder and blessing of small, ordinary things all around us. Here are a few things that bring me a bit of joy when I pay attention:
A cup for fresh brewed coffeeWhat would make your list? What brings you a smidgen of pleasure in the midst of daily living?
Fresh sheets on my bed
The first ripe tomato in my garden
A bite of chocolate
A robin preening in my bird bath
A cheery tune
A phone call from family or friends
Let's not wait for mountain-top moments when we could sip on joy in the middle of our ordinary days.
