It's the Little Things....

(Find time for the little things)

Isn't it really the little things in life that bring true happiness? The little things that fill your heart with joy and leave it almost bursting! Aren't these the things that truly matter?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sand between your toes...


Puppy kisses....


Snail mail.....


Long chats with friends......


A home-cooked meal......


Laughing until you're out of breath......


Smiling at strangers.....


Confiding in someone....


Praying.....


Wildflowers.....


Walking barefoot through the grass....


Wearing fun shoes....


Sleeping under handmade quilts......

(Photos here)

Please tell me some little things that bring you happiness.....

I love this post! You put so much thought into your posts...I adore it! :)

When someone tells me I look pretty, or they like my outfit, or shoes...makes me happy :) And I would also have to agree with the comment above...a child's laughter!

When a stranger holds the elevator door for me when I'm running late.

When I see my hubby smile. I feel so happy then.

When I get a card in the mail from my parents just saying hi.

My sweet baby girls!!!

Love these images, and I seriously can't even decide which is my favorite. Probably the one of the sweet little girl with the penguin. That one just melts my heart!

The little girl next to the penguin is beyond cute!! You really do put a lot of thought into your posts!

Little things:

- christmas music
- seeing the little girls I watch belly laugh :-)

Cute blog!

This post is so timely for me...just finished a book called Mitten Strings for God that is about remembering to make time for the little things, as a busy mother. Am reading the author's new book now. Recommend either, for anybody with or without kids, female or male!
