Enjoy the Moments

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Robert Brault

I took Kai out for Indian buffet today and a little shopping. When I was in the restroom at the restaurant I saw a sign that had the top quote on it. I stopped and thought to myself that I need to really appreciate this day. Kai has been doing so well in school this semester and has been finding new ways to get his adrenalin running, rather than getting in trouble. I feel really blessed to have he and his sister in my life and to have developed the relationship that we have. It was a good reminder that life really is all about those moments. I think we miss that when we are checking our cell phone for a new text or multitasking through our lives. Because I don't have kids of my own I really appreciate the moments I have with my nieces and nephews more than most.

The top shot is from the farm this weekend of Jess and Savannah having a moment and the bottom of Kate sharing a moment with Mike.

When I was searching for the origin of the quote above I also found these two which I thought were appropriate.

"Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don't collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don't really mean anything."

Love the quotes. A good reminder to slow down and appreciate the little things. Have a great day

That is so true. The little things as we see them are really the big things and the photos you've shared express those big moments.

I always say that I get excited over the little stuff because if you wait for the big stuff, you'll be waiting a long time. :) I like your post today.
