What are the little things?

Appreciating the Little Things

The little things consist of tiny gems of life --- precious jewels, cherished, and to be appreciated.

The smell of fresh coffee brewing on a cold winters day…
A leisurely stroll in the park, or along the lake…
Reading a good book, and remembering it.
Having time to read a newspaper from the first page until the last.
The crackle of fall leaves crunching under your feet while you enjoy the freshness of air and sunshine during a brisk walk.
The perfume of a sweet smelling rose.
A robin hopping on the ground, symbolizing the beginning of springtime.
A woodpecker chiseling away at a tree…
A hummingbird.
Singing in a choir at church…
Music, especially the classics.
The laughter of a child.
Smiling at a stranger.
Taking the time to write memories in your personal diary.
Playing in the snow…
Managing the time to notice the twilight of nightfall breaking into the dawn of morning…seeing the sunrise…watching the sunset…
Breathing fresh air…
Reading highway signs, and billboards along the highway…
Trees budding…
Planting a spring garden…
Reading poetry…
Making time to spend with your loved ones.
