Wake Up Call! – The Small Things


The small things in life invite gratitude.

Yesterday was my nephew Parker’s fourth birthday party. It was pure joy! At one point he came and took me by the hand and said, “Come see my presents with me.” When it came time for the birthday cake he was captivated by it.

It reminded me that my choices allow me to be present or not to the people and small things in life.

After the party I took my dog Lucy for a long walk and her appetite for playing fetch seemed insatiable. As I marveled at the sunset I thought about my delight in the small things of life like Parker’s party and my dog’s playfulness.

As I reflected on a time in my life where the seemingly big things occupied my life, leaving little space for the small things, I was filled with gratitude for the seemingly small things. These are the riches of life!


  • Pay attention to the small things in your life
  • Savor the gratitude for the people and places that enrich your life

Notice how the gratitude for small things enriches your life.
