The Little Things on This Saturday

I woke up this morning {to the sound of something scratching on my pillow} feeling inspired.

As soon as I opened my eyes I saw happy, healthy baby kitties bouncing around between the pillows. They had a warm bed, and another warm bed {mine} where they could snuggle on top of one another and paw at each other’s faces like little kitties love to do.

Their fluffy fur surrounded me. Their baby claws tickled at my neck as they scurried along me to find somewhere to curl up.

And then, as soon as they found their comfy spot along the soft warm blanket, that’s when I heard it. The subtle rolling purr escaping from their little bodies. Happiness. Bliss. And it was all because I was there with them in this larger than life bed.

I thought to myself, “it’s the little things.” It’s the little things in life that brighten our dark days.

It’s the little things in life that take away our worries and our fears.

It’s the little things in life that warm our hearts and put smiles on our faces.

It’s the little things in life that keep us going.

It’s the little things.

The little things are what make this life so beautiful.


So, tell me, friends – what are the “little things” in your life?

Chelsea, I related with this post so much, because I say this all of the time "it's the little things" that make the difference. Also, when reading you are terrified of flying...I am too. I knew we had to be friends...:) Now a new follower.

Aww Chelsea I love this post :) My 'little thing' is when my big english bulldog spoons right up in my belly in the middle of the night. He only does it on a very rare occasion, but his surprise snuggles make my entire week :)

Kitties = love
I like to whisper to my bf's little kittens to, "psst go attack his feet" and they always listen to me. It's funny. :)
