It's the Little Things: House Hunting Edition


I've discovered as I make this journey through life that it's not the huge things that make or break your day, week, month or life. It's the little things. So in honor of the little things, list a few with me that made your day, week, month or life brighter or sweeter. **Being that Dan and I are house hunting once again, I am really needing to focus on being positive, being grateful and to be 'in the moment' instead of fretting about the future.
  • It's enjoying the house we live in now. Like the wonderful AC unit that cools the house so well, and the efficient way the house works, holding in all that cool air. And the tank-less water heater that allows us to enjoy the large tub without fear of cold water when it's halfway full. And the whole house vac that makes indoor haircuts a snap to clean up.
  • It's laughing over funny things that happen each day, like when Anna misspeaks in her funny 4 year old way of conjugating sentences. Example: "Miss Kristy, I had an on purpose." (Bwuahaha, thank you potty training for the good laugh)
  • It's sweet iced tea in a double walled tumbler (so it doesn't *sweat* all over everything) on a triple digit heat day.
  • It's sitting on the back patio at the end of a long day, watching the puppy romp all over, and seeing the stars twinkle overhead.
  • It's the boys being caught up on their chores (which isn't necessarily a small thing, but...) and seeing clean towels on linen closet shelves, having shiny dishes in the cupboards, and bathrooms that don't require a visit from the hazmat team. :) 
  • It's knowing that it's Friday and that within a few hours, lots of our local friends will be gathered around the game tables with us, washing away the stresses of the week and welcoming us into the weekend.
  • It's having food in the fridge/pantry/freezer when your boys (who are ALL growing right now) say that they are hungry. Again. For the 37th time that day. Praise the Lord for open-all-night Wal-Mart! 
  • It's having a great real estate agent that you feel comfortable putting the needs of your family in her capable (and ethical) hands.  

I like the idea of this style of post. If you like it too, add your little things! I'm making it a goal to focus on the positive this year...Join me!
