Little things. {Warming the heart.}

Little things.

Sometimes it's the little things that warm our hearts the most.

A good morning kiss.
A simple hug.
A gentle smile.
A listening ear.
A shoulder to lean on.
Simple reassurance.
An unexpected phone call.
A small gift from a love one.

A walk through a field of flowers.
An evening spent blowing bubbles with small ones.
Bonding with your children.
A nice cuddle with a special book.
Capturing everyday moments with your camera.

A simple hello.
A smile from a stranger.
Helping  someone in need.
Preparing a dish for your family.
Reconnecting with an old friend.

A bouquet of fresh flowers.
Alone time.-Clearing your thoughts and feeling refreshed.
A stroll through nature.
Morning sunrise.
An evening sunset.
A hot cup of tea/coffee.

These little things warm our hearts. Reminding us that we must take time to enjoy them. Take time to notice, rejoice and simply live for the moment.
Today take time and notice these little things around you. Refresh your mind, enjoy the moment and remember these are the little things that warm our hearts the most.

My list of little things:

 Bonding time over strawberry milk and teddy cookies.

Surprised at how quickly our grass has sprouted in the monkey jar. 

I giggled quite a bit. -When I turned my back for a few, my daughter surprised me with marker painted toes. She said all she wanted was to have pretty toes. :) Oh the joys of motherhood! 

Finding our dogs play toys taking a stroll in a stroller. 

Rainy afternoon. 

After the rain. The sun is out, the air is fresh.

Art time.

She enjoys painting and  I enjoy watching her create.

Hello and welcome new friends and followers. It's so nice to have you here.


  1. I love that she painted her toes! Oh the joys of motherhood! My son like to draw on his hands just to see the difference between his skin and paper.

    1. Don't you just love motherhood?! Lol, I laughed for a while seeing that she colored her little toes. That's so cute that your son likes to do that. Kids are truly amazing. :)
