Sometimes It's The Little Things


Do you know what this is?


Yeh, it's a spring for a garage door.

It broke a couple of months ago.

It was our busy season at work and then Christmas came. 

And went.

I tried really hard not to whine.

I mean, the people in Haiti wish they had my garage to sleep in.

But yesterday I went home to a surprise.

Hubby had someone come fix it.

Without me whining or nagging.

It's the little things.

SO exciting!!
I know that it must have been frustrating. I should probably learn that lesson - less nagging :)

Good for you! I love it when things like that happen unexpectedly!! Hubby let me call a fix-it man for all of the little things around the house. It's amazing how happy a fixed door can make you!

Little things in life mean so much! This was a perfect illustration. Isn't it interesting that the little things can become big things so quickly, in our lives. I like how you shared the importance of keeping a proper perspective.

I wanted to make sure you got my message regarding your question yesterday. The Stadium is open to the public for tours daily.

You're so right...every single day there is a "little" thing that we need to be thankful for!

Hugs!
