It's the little things that count...Part II

When I posted the blog before this one, I had no idea what 'Part II' would be. Over the past 6 days, I've come up with so many of the "little things", that I don't know where to start!!  They are EVERYWHERE!!!  I will have to have a regular post dedicated to these wonderful "things" that make my day a brighter one.  :)   I'm sure you have them in your lives too!!
 

It all started when I was feeling bummed that I hadn't had any followers for my blog yet.  I know I just started a few weeks ago, but all I kept thinking was, "isn't there someone out there who thinks I'm worthy of following?"  And then it happened!  Not only did I have a new follower, thank you Elle from elle keeps moving, but she left me a comment too!!  I had finished reading and commenting on her post Maybe I'm moving too fast, but... and it totally made me want to start a campaign to gain a following.  But I know that will happen with time.  Plus, I need to learn the discipline of writing a blog before I start making signs.  As of right now...I have THREE people following me!!  WOO HOO!  Movin' on up!  Silly, but still.  lol.  It definitely helps motivate me to keep writing, that's for sure!  Whatever works!!



Over the weekend, I wanted a really yummy breakfast sandwich.  You know, the kind with melted cheese over a poached egg with turkey and mustard and toasted bread.  I was in luck, as I could make it in 5 minutes flat with my handy dandy toaster with egg poacher attachment!!! (You can get this online, just click this link ~~~> Bed Bath and Beyond).  YUM!!!  (Our orange monkey veggie peeler is just an added visual bonus!)  ;)




 
I think in every "little things" post, I will include a snippet from my husband Steven.  He does THOUSANDS of little things for me everyday.  Some of which I sure go unnoticed, but he doesn't mind.  His response is always, "you do the same for me".  He supports me when I think I can't do something, he takes the time to listen to me babble on and on about whatever book I'm reading, and he makes me laugh...A LOT. 



It always amazes me how many relationships out there are not supportive.  How many people do not have what Steven and I have.  I want to surround myself with those people and follow blogs and groups that have that system in place.  After all, your surroundings help make you a part of what you are.  :)

It reminds me of when I was a kid and my friends were always commenting on how close my Mom and I were.  Wanting that for themselves and not knowing how to get it.  I thank my Mom for teaching me to notice all the little things in life.  Teaching me to appreciate them and thank my stars that I have them.  It's the little things in life that make me feel alive.



What are some of the little things this past week that you've been grateful for???
