Thursday Favorite: The Small Things

I thought it might be good for the (my!) soul to reflect on the past week and recall my favorite moments, in a weekly update called “Thursday Favorite.” It’s a practice in gratitude, and a chance to look back in the short term (because it’s that long-term look back that can be crazy making!).

This week has been eventful – good fortune is coming my way.  Yet, two smaller moments come to mind.

It really is the small stuff.

A phone call with an old friend – we had worked together years ago – covered all the important life topics –raising kids, forgiveness, generosity, and where to get good legal help when you need it.  I hung up feeling restored.

A perfectly ordinary walk home from the neighborhood coffee shop rendered me grateful.  For some reason as I approached my house with Mandy the lunatic dog perched on the fence eagerly awaiting my arrival, I was overcome with a tremendous sense of gratitude.  For the life I have and the life I have been able to live.  Even my tiny corner house looked especially cheerful and welcoming to me.  I felt not an ounce of scarcity.

(Here’s me with my lunatic in the backyard. Love my girl.)
