Every Little Thing



I have an ever growing appreciation for the little things...
...and am determined to make each moment count!

Spending time with my parents at the lake these last summer days...
...I am so appreciative of this gift of time...

It was a beautiful weekend here in the mountains...
I hope the week ahead brings all good things!

Yes, the little things that life brings us are a gift. I know sometimes I forget to slow down and appreciate the people in my life. Aren't slow and lazy weekends shared with people we love the BEST?
Have a wonderful week!

Isn't it funny how things work out? If you were still working you may not have had all this time to spend with your folks. I'm so glad that you do. Best wishes are being sent your way,

I was thinking and feeling exactly the same today. How precious every little moment with loved ones can be. My son left for college again today (he is now in Vermont, 9 hours away from home) and I thought about how blessed I was to have been able to spend 3 whole weeks with him. Thank you for always posting such meaningful feelings and reminding us about the simple pleasures. Have a wonderful week ~ Anji

Oh so true,
Wish I could turn back the hands of time here, but that is what's good in saying what's true... "I love you" to people that hold your heart. So good to hear that's what's happening with you, Laura. It is truly a gift every moment you have to say it out loud.

You touched my heart tonight, enjoy your time & beautiful week to you.

I agree...learning to appreciate the little things in life makes a profound difference... and the gift of time is the greatest gift of all. The sharing of one's time is the very essence of each life and a precious gift indeed.

You are so right...it is the little things that count. I love looking at the details, especially on old buildings where a worn doorknob, front step or bit of woodwork speaks volumes about the lives that were lived there, the hands and feet that called those places home over the years.

Beautiful images! I'm so glad I stumbled on your blog! Looking forward to reading more!

it is the little things; the little moments strung together that mean the most.

Wise words, Laura. Nothing can ever replace time. :-)

Have a wonderful week!

Its so important and yet sometimes we just let time slip away on trivial matters...Enjoy each day as if It were your last is my motto.

I think that learning to appreciate "the little things" comes with age and maturity. I know that as I have gotten older, I've developed an even deeper desire to LOOK FOR the beauty and blessings of each new day. Why couldn't I have been THIS wise in my younger days? lol
