Patti Digh of Life is a Verb says that, "...it is about doing small things that give you life, bring you joy, help you inhabit the stories of your days--and by extension, help change the world and the others around you...To fully live, you must be present in the biggest way possible." That's a lot to ponder for sure. I really do agree that small things really can bring joy if you stop to notice them and breathe them in. These little things are the ones that make up our real lives, the ones that can make your heart swell. The giggle from your baby, a vase of fat white lilacs in May, hearing your daughter read aloud to you at bedtime. What are the small things that truly bring you joy? That stop you in your tracks and make you feel so damn lucky sometimes?
