Thanks for visiting my blog “Life and Random Thinking” – today will be another post for the Three Little Thoughts category (I have a few different categories for my blog ☺)
Thinking about the Little Things that are so meaningful in our lives, it is not overseas trips, not expensive restaurants, it is the little things that make me smile. Small things that I overlook but would miss so dearly.
Little things that cause us, you and me, to Smile and pause.
- Hugs to start the day, every day, along with a whistle to find one another in the house.
- The first sip of coffee of the day especially when it my favorite creamer (hazelnut)
- Chirping birds and seeing them hop around in the sunflower plants
- At the end of the day I can relax, and sleep in my own bed and pillow.
I once spent a long time indoors (hospitalized) and when I finally walked outside it was a little thing that I remember – wind. I couldn’t just get in the car, I had to soak it up. I had missed wind.
Maybe something effects you the same – does the smell of cinnamon buns stop you in your tracks? Onions barbecuing on the grill?
I remember when I was really young, my friends loved my house. My Mom baked fresh bread nearly daily and there was homemade jam (blueberry I remember).
It’s the Little Things that you never forget but at the time you just experience and enjoy.

Word of the Day: Lope – run or move with a long bounding stride.
In a sentence: I was watching nature videos and the fox, deer, etc moved so lightly on their feet – I thought that bouncing walk is amazing; I definitely wish I could lope like that.
It really is the little things that we can overlook but are so meaningful and essential.
Clean water, being able to move freely, a safe place to rest and the hugs of those closest to our hearts.
