MORE LITTLE THINGS

I’ve said this over and over again because I believe it to be true

most of our enjoyment in life comes from the little things we do.

 

Little moments…little adventures…little wonders

that somehow find a way

to enter into our lives…and brighten up our day.

 

Like moments found by two thin blooded Floridians…both over 65 years old

on a recent camping trip together…when the weather outside turned cold.

 

They bundled up and took a boat ride…

they listened to what the captain had to teach

they saw a fort that was built but never used

and watched wild horses running on a beach.

 

They ate the best clam chowder and crab cakes

they had ever been served

and they handed the waitress who served them

a tip she so rightly deserved.

 

They stood on the edge of the Atlantic ocean

while a flock of birds circled overhead

they tried the Pirate punch in the oldest bar in Florida

and watched as their cheeks turned red.

 

They watched three sunrises and sunsets

They saw a family of dolphins perform…

they found when you hold hands even if it’s freezing outside

inside you feel warm.

 

These little moments…little adventures…little wonders

somehow found a way

to enter into their lives…and brighten up their day. 

 

Thus proving once again what I’ve always believed to be true

 

most of our enjoyment in life…comes from the little things we do.
