little gifts [277 - 300]

It's been a while since I've written down some of the little blessings around me and I couldn't think of a better way to start this week. In the weeks it's been since last writing the little gifts down, I've noticed what a difference it makes in my outlook and days. So, hopefully too long won't go by before doing another one of these posts.

A tiny hand tracing your face - that is one of the best feelings in the world. Last night Olivia was rubbing my arm while I was rocking her to sleep and I was in heaven. I wish I could just capture those moments and save them because I know that I'm going to miss them so much when they're gone.

Thank you so much for always reminding me of what is important. I mean, I know what is important, but such small, mundane things that usually get overlooked are so special. Thanks for the reminder!
