I finally dragged myself downstairs only to find my husband and our to naughties, Marley and Shiloh, laying on the couch. Rob was sleep, while the to naughties relaxed on the couch with him. It reminded me how much my family does for me so that I can do other things with my spoons.
The Little Big Things
My niece, husband, and son are the primary people who take the dogs out in the morning and at night. No matter how tired my husband is, he brings me breakfast and my meds every morning. When my baby sister comes to town, she cooks practically every night. Those are some of the little big things they do. Oh so seamless, yet so powerful.
Just when I think I have no “profound” gratitude, God nudges me. Blessings are so intermixed in my daily life if I am not careful, I’ll take it for granted. That is why I am dedicated to my gratitude ritual — it won’t allow me to take the little big things for granted.
Gratitude regulates my attitude and my vision keen. Look around and note the little things that you may be taken for granted. Ask yourself what would be the impact on my life if that was to go away? … you think you need to go tell someone, “Thank you.”? Yeah, I thought so. You’re welcome.
