“It’s the little things that matter, that add up in the end, with the priceless thrilling magic found only in a friend.” – Elizabeth Dunphy
Today started off rough. After a long night battling a racing mind and several toddler/baby wake-ups, I woke up to my alarm at 6:01am (yes, 6:01) in a grouchy mood, to say the least. And then I left for work and my car literally slid sideways down our street on a ridiculous sheet of ice. Thank God no cars were coming through the intersection. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling too positive about today by the time I got to work.
However, 2 things got my day going in a much different direction than it started.
- SUNSHINE & blue skies! Need I say more?
- The sweetest, most amazing little note from my dear friend, Kelly. Seriously, who sends handwritten notes these days? I still can’t stop smiling from it.
The moral of this story is… well, I’m not really sure. All I know is that, like I’ve said a million times before, it really is the little things in life that matter. I get so easily caught up in the every day stresses of life that I forget to stop and smell the roses and appreciate the little things… to take 5 minutes out of my day and write a kind note to someone. Why don’t I do this? Well, thanks to you Kelly, I’m going to start doing it! Love you girl!
On another, much more important note… I was munchin’ on some trail mix at work when I came across something most interesting. See for yourself:
I don’t know why I found this giant raisin so amuzing, but I did! Ha! Never could bring myself to eat it, though.
