I love noticing the little thing in my day to day life. Small details, which some, scratch that, which most over look at times, but I try carefully to take notice. These things excite me! Things like if someone gets a hair cut at work I always try to compliment them about it. They usually smile and I usually feel good about noticing it an making them smile. Or while jogging... I make the conscience effort myself to wave hi to other people on the street, even if I don't get a hi back at me, it makes me feel good about myself. An when I get a "hi" it's all that much more worth it. There's leaving notes for friends about how awesome they are, because who doesn't like a little pick me up from time to time, and it's nice being able to show the people you care about that they are appreciated. I'll make an effort to tell parents who have well behaved kids that they are doing an awesome job, and even the struggling mom who I saw pushing the cart thru the grocery store with a crying toddler last week, ya, I stopped her and said it get's easier and you're doing a great job... which put a smile on her face an a bigger smile on my face as I passed her by. It's the little things that matter most to me so I do my best to enjoy those little things when they come back around in my favor. All in all life seems better when you take notice and "enjoy the little things". An though it may be hard to see the positives if you have a lot going on in your life currently, I'm sure there are a great many things to still smile about. Have a lovely day sweet friends.
Well I hope your Turkey Day an long weekend was fabulous! I know I was stuffed and enjoyed some taste food and yummy desserts. I was on dessert duty so I made all my favorites and kinda couldn't go wrong ;) Either way a bit of color inspiration from this vintage 1960's / 70's German Matchbox label to kick of your December! Can you believe it? It's December already, how did that happen? Happy new week, happy almost Winter. :)
The whole month leading up to Turkey Day (aka Thanksgiving) makes me really reflect on the things that I'm most thankful for. Not that I'm not thankful all year round because I surely am, but it helps me reflect an appreciate it all a bit little more. I'm thankful for my health, for my kids and their health, for loved ones, for family both near and far, for friends, for the home over our heads, a good job, an so much more. An even you, I am thankful you are here reading along on my little blog. An thank you for sticking around, or thank you for just joining me here. I hope this years been good to you, an I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
