Find Beauty in the Little Things

When Andrew & I were dating, he always told me, "It's the little things." He would do something small (but sweet) such as open my door for me (which he still does, I might add-- even after a year of marriage). Of course, you all probably know the quote, "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you might find that they are actually the big things." So is it really the little things in life? 

I think it is. 

When you look back at your life, you begin to realize that your life is surrounded by moments. Those moments make up memories. In those memories, there's the little things. Like the last time you ever saw your Dad alive, all you remember is when he kissed your forehead. Or when you always sat with your Mom in her chair, even when you got too big. And then when your husband (who wasn't even officially your boyfriend at the time) sang a song to you in the car & you realized he was "the one." All of those memories are flooded with "little things." 

I think you can find beauty in everything. Even in life's toughest times, somewhere in the middle of it, there's beauty. You can always find beauty in the little things. You may not realize it at the time, but it's there. 

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder-- You just have to be searching for it. Don't be such a pessimist or a "negative Nancy" that you miss the little things in life. Take a moment to capture & remember what all you've been blessed with. So my deep thoughts today will end with this... find beauty in the little things, because they really are the big things in life. 

What are some beautiful things around you?
