Things I Love

I read a quote recently that said "fall in love with as many things as you can in this lifetime".  Not sure where I read it but it stuck with me.

One of the things I loved about my dad was that he had the knack for enjoying the little things in life.  Whether it was a piece of pie, a movie or just a song on the radio if he liked it he took the time to enjoy it.

So many of us have become accustomed to bigger and better and that everything has to be amazing to be worthy.  How many great things are we ignoring everyday by looking forward to something that we think should wow us.

Be wowed today by something. There will be something that crosses your path today that you can fall in love with.

I fall in love with things all the time.  This week I am in love with McDonald's Fruit and Maple oatmeal, earrings that sparkle and are shaped like a crown and a pair of clogs I found at the Salvation Army.  All these things are simple and inexpensive but I am enjoying them.

Next week I am sure I will have a new batch of things that I am in love with.  If I keep loving all the little things I will be ready to love the big things when they come along.   Practice makes perfect.
