The little things

Sometimes, it’s the little things that brighten a week.

Like a frosty morning Happy hello.frostyhappy

It’s now daylight as I cross the Kaskaskia River on my drive to work.kaskaskia_river

And I love small towns. Especially my small town of Shelbyville.

This week I got to see the DQ parking lot filled with tractors and farm trucks as the FFAers celebrated FFA week.  I wish I would have gotten a picture.

The first robins appeared in my yard.

And, just in case I ignore her, she will stretch for the attention,bubbles

knowing I can’t resist.

Working with people I can share laughs with.

Plus, the bonus of time, talks, walks, meals and church with my kids, family and friends.  But, those are the BIG things.

May I not take any of it, them, for granted.

That is my hope for you this week, too, friends!

    Are you sure Happy was saying hello? He might have been complaining about the cold. And all those tractors at the DQ — oh what a missed shot. I mean, just how often does one SEE that? –Living Rural in the City

      Yes, that big intake of air Happy takes in order to bray had to be chilly! I regret not slowing down and taking pics at the DQ. I was in a hurry to get a week’s worth of errands done on my lunch hour. It sure made me smile, though. 🙂

    I love that evening buddy stretching for you. 😀 I saw quite a number of robins at the botanical garden last week. I agree with your assessment of little/big things.
