The Little Things

It's the little things in life that awaken your spirit - gestures that require very little but have a grand affect on the other person.  It really does happen when you least expect it.

On Sunday morning after leaving the gym, my friend and I decided to grab breakfast at a nearby restaurant - when I returned to my vehicle my sweet, sweet man left the following kind gesture on my car. At first I thought it was trash on my windshield!! "What the heck?" I exclaimed. But as I leaned closer to the windshield I noticed the writing and his initials.

 I immediately sent him a text, "A message on a Teddy Graham's container beats a dozen roses any day." It made my heart melt. And he'll probably read this and be completely embarrassed.

 I'm kind of hoping that he doesn't read this one. I'm a sucker for these things. I keep movie stubs and receipts from dinner dates. I jot "special" moments down on my calendar. This lid will be joining all the fun as well. I've done such a good job at guarding my heart over the years that that's pretty much all I'm good at. And I don't want to be that person anymore.

I fall asleep extraordinarily happy and I wake up the same way. Apart from all the things I have to deal with daily, like my father's illness, my days are abundantly great.

Never let a person be your happiness, let them be the reason you're just that much happier. Create your own happy.
