The Little Things...

Let's all take the time, in 2012, to celebrate the small things. 
You know, the smell of a Summer rose, the laughter of children, 
an understanding glance from a friend or family member. The aroma and taste of
 a hot cup of tea or coffee, perfectly brewed. 

An unexpected phone call from 
an old buddy. Taking a nice, long hot shower or bubble bath, watching the sunrise 
or the sunset, seeing a great film or play. How about settling in with a cozy throw and
a wonderful book? Ah...go ahead. You can picture it can't you?

The rustle of Autumn leaves...

...or the first Winter snowfall.

Going with your family to a Summer carnival...

...the unconditional love of a pet.

Each day we are showered with precious, little gifts that can bring us so much joy.

 Let's celebrate the fact that you can see and hear and smell, taste, cry, laugh,
 hug and be hugged. The simple fact that you woke up today, got out of
 bed, that fact that you CAN make a difference in so many lives, that you CAN love and
 be loved in return...let's celebrate the little things that surround us every day!

Happy New Year to each one of you...sending you all much love!
