Sunday Thoughts ~ The Little Things

“Joy comes to us in moments ~ ordinary moments. We risk missing out on joy when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary.” ~ Dr. Brene Brown 


“It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien

“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” ~ Laura Elizabeth Ingalls Wilder

“Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of their hearts.” ~ Unknown


Magic is not necessarily a big thing. A delicious morning coffee with someone you care about, aware and grateful for that moment all the time it’s happening, is as wonder full as a rabbit out of a hat, if you’re willing to see it that way. Magic does not have to be in capitalized to be magical.” ~ Jonathan Carroll

May the angels walk beside you, wherever you roam.

Good morning Sandra! It is the little things that bring joy…that combined makes a life. The images are gorgeous and every quote so perfect with each photo. The little girl in the garden reminds me of my Ella Mae, crusty bread and butter…simple but satisfying, ripe tomatoes that are summer’s bounty, a little one with big dreams…all simple things but what joy they bring. You bring joy in this lovely post. Have a joy-filled Sunday❤️

Good morning Sandra! Oh, how I love this, truly the small things in life that we cherish are not small at all. Every quote is perfection, isn’t it? Being grateful every day for the birds that sing, for the green of nature, a smile on a child’s face, the love of a friend, these are things that bring joy to our hearts. Happy weekend, friend. xo Lidy
