The small things

Do you ever wonder why we are not more thankful for the small things in life? Every day we are blessed with things that most take for granted. You open your eyes in the morning, wow now that's a big one but how many people are truly thankful for that? Gets you to think doesn't it? Hop into the shower and there is hot water, thank you. Pour yourself that morning cup of tea or coffee and eat your breakfast.Get into your car and drive to work(no one likes to work but with a job you have money which provides all these things we need and take for granted).
Now on the issue of car, my car recently died on me literally, gonzo, cu put, blaaahhhhh!!! WTF do i do now? Without my car i cannot get to work because the buses do not go to this particular area, how do i get to stuff like hockey? Oh and the most important how do i see my children, i need my car to be able to pick them up and spend those few but precious hours with them. Blessings, yes because luckily i had another car that my Dad had given me years ago but just had it in storage, tried to sell a few times but sale never went through. So the blessing, all the car needed was brakes and a basic tune up, BLESSING!!!
So my good friends Ian and Mike who are both a lot more mechanically gifted than me, lol, guided me through the process tonight and i was able to get the car fixed and road worthy in just a few hours with minimal cost. Small things but so big! Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for all the support and help.
So be thankful for those little things we take for granted on a daily basis, bless others with even a coffee or better yet a smile, they are free and can change a dreary day into a joyful day. I have a very close friend and when she smiles i get goose bumps, really she has the most beautiful smile i have ever seen so smile more cause it is wonderful and might just bless someone, cause no matter my mood her smile warms me and brings joy to my heart always forever.

  May you always have work for your hands to do. May your pockets hold always a coin or two. May the sun shine bright on your windowpane. May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

  1. I think we all need to be better about being thankful for the little things. If we are always on the lookout for the big things we will miss out on the small blessings along the way.
