    It is those little things that make up a day. It is those little things that create memories and share love. It is those little things that shine through us all the time because they mean something little and special to us. I love this!

    it’s the little things we often forget to count or take time to count, but they are the constants that really matters. My husband kisses me each morning before he leaves the house too – – I love that he does that. Thanks for sharing you list of 100 little things today at #LMM …. Oh and I am impressed that you are doing the Write31 day challenge – my hat is off to you. 🙂

      Debbie thank you. We are blessed they kiss us goodbye. It wasn’t always so when we were younger. I am hoping I can keep up with the #31 day challenge. Today has been difficult to concentrate.

      Brandi I agree. I met a friend there a few months back and we were there from 11 until 4. We used to work together and it had been six months or more since we had met.

    What a lovely life you live. Blessings to you and your glorious family and friends. Liking the creamer in there as well as the “Thunder, but not lightening or wind”. I like winds but not Thunder and Lightning. ^_^
