When we look forward or back for the highlights of our lives, we tend to overlook the beauty in the “ordinary” parts of our experience. In this time of “highlights” on TV, we have been taught to wait and look forward to the big events. We have been programmed to only see the big things and ignore the small areas of our lives. But, it is the small areas that define our experiences. It is the “small” things that we remember most.
Ask a loved one what is the one thing they love about you most and most likely they’ll recall a small event you did that made a big difference in their lives. Our lives are measured by small acts of kindness. Today, when you count your blessings, remember the little things and you’ll find God.
