i’m petite, i’m 21 and yet i look 16. i still buy my clothes in the kids section. i have to hem all of my pants. my legs are short, but…i can run. i can climb. i can jump! 3 years ago
I have legs, arms, ears, eyes that work. Little things I take for granted…I want to remember how BIG these little things are. 4 years ago
I have, and will always have, a sense of wonder…I am a lifelong student.
I definitely always appreciate the little things too.
It is the little things that are so easy to do that also can mean so much. 5 years ago
I love my life…I really do.
If I sat here and dreamed about different things I wanted, I could definitely come up with something…who couldn’t?!
I would love to have a bigger house with a double car garage, a mud room, another bedroom…a treadmill in the basement to use when it’s just too cold to venture outdoors…a sparkly ring from the hubby…
The problem is, the more we have, the more we seem to want…unless we keep ourselves in check.
The house we have serves our family just fine, there is a sidewalk outside and a winter coat in my closet so I can go for a walk, and I already have my wedding and engagement rings on my finger…
The kids don’t need really need that much either. I tried to keep my spending down this year on them too—since I have been known to go the other way at times!
I appreciate my health and that of my family’s, the love that we all have for each other & that we have a roof over our head and food on the table.
Even though money is tight for us (single income) I think about all the other people in the world who are not as fortunate as us and hope for them. I wish for them to enjoy all the ‘simple’ fortune that we have.

if you let it be, then every day can be a new adventure. life will never get old or boring.
i wish i could tell everyone how to accomplish this.
i think the ‘little things’ part i first became in touch with while tripping on LSD in the 1990s. those little details in life are so worth the time it takes to notice them.
as for my sense of wonder.. i moved to chicago and every street corner inspires me. i leave work with a stupid grin on my face like i just got laid when i walk out of a skyscraper and remember that i live and work in one of my favorite cities on this planet. 6 years ago
Frost on windows late at night, and early in the morning, is kinda neat. 6 years ago
The leaves are starting to turn here. Sure in San Diego we had a few deciduous trees, but nothing like here. The colors are changing – they look especially gorgeous when the trees are a mix of green and red, or yellow, or orange. 6 years ago
Don’t let anyone in California know this – they may never let me move back….
...I am starting to appreciate the rain. At night the sound of rain on the roof is actually quite nice, and I like the translucent patterns that are made on the skylights – especially at night. 6 years ago
As I read “The Tao Of Pooh” I cannot help but recall the game of Poohsticks played by Christopher Robin and Pooh.
It’s a simple game actually. While standing on a bridge, each play drops a stick in the water then rushes to the other side to see who’s stick reaches the other side first.
To this day I still love to drop sticks in the water. And if I can’t play Poohsticks (without anyone know what I am doing) I still like to drop sticks, or leaves, in the rush of water along a curb after a rainfall. 6 years ago
Today I went to the Aerodrome in Rhinebeck New York. Barnstorming bi-planes. Vintage aircraft celebrating the early heros of aviation.
In the middle of the show I noticed a stand of birches on the far side of the field, and several maples behind them. I was hyphotized by the way the leaves danced in the wind, and missed a good part of the show. 6 years ago
Who does this anymore ? As a child, I recall a sprig of parsley was on virtually every plate in every place we ate. Nowadays I rarely see that little sprig of parsley, but when it’s there it’s like an old friend coming back to visit. And yes, I love to much that little green wonder. So refreshing, fresh breath and all! 6 years ago
