I believe life is all about the little things. A bouquet of flowers on the kitchen table, a great scented candle, a quick text that someone is thinking of you. I was on facebook this morning and saw all the great pictures of my friends kids who were eating green pancakes, green cookies, green milk, and anything else their parents could make green to bring joy to this St. Patrick’s Day. They are such little things that make a big difference in their child’s day. As adults we tend to forgo the little things, life gets busy, work takes most of the day, and our responsibilities don’t always allow for the heart shaped pancake at breakfast, or kiss goodbye in the morning, or a postcard from a friend. Don’t take the little things for granted. All those little gestures throughout the day can make for a pretty great day!
