The Little Things in Life

I know it may seem a little old-fashioned but I enjoy my cup of coffee at home. Of course, coffee house cup is amazing but there is something good about enjoying that time relaxing with my kids and husband. These times really go by fast and before you know it, the kids are grown up and out of the house.

When I look around and watch people, I see a race. We seem to have created bizarre races for ourselves trying to outdo each other. Competing to see who's ahead in their list of friends, how many parties they're invited, who they know, where they work, what they wear, how many kids they have, how good the kids are at school and on and on it goes.

In the end, does it really matter. We are all going to the same place in the end so how is winning this race going to help us get there. To me, its the little things in life that count. Playing a board game with my daughter, seeing the toothless grin on my baby's face, my husband's smile when he's just had some chocolate, my parents voice, these are the little things that count for me.
