It’s The Little Things

Taking a shower for so long your fingers get wrinkly.

Being in the presence of loved ones, doing nothing but enjoying their company.

Going outside without mittens for the first time.

Finding that shirt you thought you lost last year.

Eating a banana, avocado, or mango on it’s day of perfect ripeness.

Days where your hair magically falls into place without being styled.

Tea.

Being seated in a restaurant right away and getting the best table there.

Having amazing home baked bread, then turning it into French toast.

Knowing that even when there are a million things to complain about, there are still things over the course of the day that can bring you a little slice of happiness.
