It's the Little Things

I loving sitting back and thinking about the little things that happen during the day. Especially if it's been a bad day, or a bad week. Like it has been here the past couple of days. :(  Miss A is still teething (I swear this girl takes FOREVER to get in new teeth) and she's crabby one day, happy the next, but no matter how she is during the day, she's not sleeping at night. Ugh. It's the worst. Anyway, I was so happy to stumble upon this link up, hosted by Words About Waverly and Sadie Sky Boutique, It's the Little Things. Being a SAHM can be the most wonderful job in the world, but it can also be the most challenging, and tiring job. Thinking about all the little things that happen make it all so worth it.

...Sitting outside with Miss A in the sun, on a 60 degree day in January

...Seeing the sun. I can't tell you what a blessing it is to live in North Carolina and not Michigan this time of year. All our friends are dealing with SO much snow!

...Running out to do an errand over the weekend, and getting home to hear "MAMA!" as Miss A runs to me for a hug

...Finishing a warm cup of coffee without having to reheat it once. It happened!

...Finding new books to read at the library. I checked out this, this, and this.

...Pulling Miss A in her bucket (it holds her stuffed animals) as she bursts into giggles

...Finding the perfect shade of gray to paint our old mirror

...Snuggling with my husband every night before bed

...Finding white flowers blooming around our deck, despite the cold temperatures

...Baking chocolate cake cookies together as a family

Those are the little things.
