The Little Things

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”~Robert Brault
There are so many things that bring a smile to my face and brighten my heart. They are so simple. I have learned that I don't need much in life to fill me up with joy. I just take a look all around me and see that life is good. Don't get me wrong, I have my share of problems and worries which I will save for another post, but I contentiously try on a daily basis to find the things that make me happy. What I am learning is that it is all of the little things that can brighten our day.

To share a few of "the little things" I will start with "clean sheet day". I have always loved jumping into a freshly changed, still warm from the dryer, cozy fluffed up bed! Little Chick and I jump in and read lots of books. We both immediately say "I love clean sheet day!" It is so cute how Little Chick loves it now too. She puts her nose on the pillow and says, "Mmmmm! So clean and fresh!"

The next thing that I love is Little Chick's way of saying a couple of things. I find myself not in a hurry to correct her, because it is so cute! When she says a little bit, it comes out "a libble lit". I just want to give her a big hug every time she says it. The other one is "caully". This is how she has always said cozy. Now the entire family and close friends say "caully". I figure she has the rest of her life to speak like an adult. Why not keep some of the little things that make us smile!?!

  1. This is so true! The little things are really what matter most; Like the way my daughter (5) will scream for me across the house just to laugh and tell me she loves me..or the way my son (19 moths) will poke me in the leg repeatedly just so I can look at his smile...it's important to remember those little things :)

  4. That picture brought a smile to my face. She's adorable. I love the way little kids say things. My seven year old used to call marshmallow marmashows and she called her cousin Luke, Guke. I miss those days.

    gracee would say "gill" instead of girl...and she would say i lub you..it was a little sad when she started saying it right! i am glad you are enjoying those little things because they growup so fast!

  10. I have been thinking lately of all the times that I didn't give my kids the attention or notice the small things they did when they were here. Being without them this past month has been a cleanser for my mind and thoughts, much like a 'breather'. The little things really do MATTER and they really are the BIG things that are important.
    I love little chicks baby talk, what a cutie! I bet those nice warm and clean sheets really are 'caully' :-D CUTE!

  14. I agree with you about the little things they say. Scooby's in speech therapy so I can't cherish all of his -isms, but there are just some I'm not willing to part with, like "hemming" for swimming.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
