i am easily pleased and easily amused.
i am constantly reminded of all the little things that have won over my heart.
sometimes it is a friend remembering the lime with my coke for a long drive, or it’s a cousin answering the phone when five children demand her attention.
for christian, it began with him remembering just how much i love little critter books and strategically adding to my collection. it was also a valentine’s day surprise when i wasn’t expecting anything. we had walked down madison at dusk and stared through the window of the hardware store at the tiny, colorful glass bottles with corks. valentine’s morning they were above my sink.
or a frame that i see every day, holding one of my favorite pictures and made by one of my favorite people.
one of the little things arrived just this week and reminded me that old friends are still some of the best friends because they know you so well.
there are the times too, when you find something familiar in a new place.
