I read a book about a month ago about relishing in the life before you. It helped me pay closer attention to the little things my life had to offer. The smiles on my children’s faces, the time I have with them in the stages where they need me most. It also made me more intentional about who I give my time and attention to.
This morning as I was taking a moment to pray and relishing in what is before me. I realized that I have to remember that the little things make the bigger picture. If I’m not thankful for the little things, I’ll never be thankful for the bigger picture when it comes together.
So I’m starting this day with thanksgiving on my lips and going forward knowing that all these little things, even the little beginnings, play a role in the bigger picture God has for me.
