the small things

I used to think the big things in life were the focus -- big trips to somewhere, something new I got that I wanted for a long time, success with a project or job.
Now I know that the small things are where the riches lie.
A lovely home cooked meal.
A large fluffy dog whose eyes look into mine lovingly.
Laughs with a good friend.
and my journal is a great place to remind myself of this.
A heart filled with gratitude is a wonderful thing, and it really just takes reminding of the abundance that we live in.

Got no check books, got no banks.
Still I'd like to express my thanks
I got the sun in the mornin' and the moon at night.
--Irving Berlin
