Appreciating the Little Things

Stella Dottie and Princeton Francis

I think that everyone experiences, once in a while, a moment that causes you to pause and appreciate the little things in life. I had one such moment this morning.

I usually wake quite early during the week. I roll out of bed, feed the kitties, let the light in and enjoy a few quiet morning moments with a cup of coffee and the local news. This morning, I opened up the curtains to find a family of seven deer right outside the window. They were crossing the deserted street in a line, right in the crosswalk.

It was one of those moments where I just smiled to myself. Stella and I sat on the couch, watching the deer slowly cross the street and wander into the woods; it was a great start to the day.

What makes you smile?

  2. Seeing deerwhen you wake up in the morning? that must have been really awe striking! i feel that same sort of peace and contentment when i am in my garden in the morning - so quiet and still.
