Monday Musings ~ The Small Things

When life knocks the wind out of you, when plans fall apart, when simply breathing is hard, there’s a certain comfort in the small, ordinary things—like a soft place to land at the end of the day, like having coffee in a favorite cup, like sharing fast-food with a sister, or playing a favorite song over and over.

Last week, I got a text from a friend that said, "I'm thinking of you." It is the small things that make the big things easier to bear, don't you agree?

    Reading Elizabeth's comment, I echo her words, too.

  4. It is the small touches of grace that uplift us, and the small comforts that enable us to take another step along the way.

    GOD BLESS.
