We all know that it’s the little things – the simplest things – that can bring us great joy. Here are two teeny-tiny things from yesterday that make me feel warm & fuzzy.
1. Anyone who has followed my blog knows that I’m a sucker for my kids’ art (like many of you mothers). Porter (7) & Claire (4) have both recently drawn a little self-portrait that I now keep on my monitor. I love little people drawn by little people. I love seeing these constantly.
2. You might also know that I’m a sucker for a good cupcake. Not to worry. Sprinkles isn’t nearly close enough to where I live (my hips are thankful for that). But a friend was in that direction yesterday and was intuitive enough to know that a Sprinkles cupcake is exactly what I needed last night. The warm & fuzzy part is to have dear friends who are so generous & thoughtful & actually follow through with their thoughts & promptings.
You know how you get that feeling sometimes? That teeny tiny little thought in your head (or your heart) that gives you an idea of something that you should maybe do for a friend? Or even someone you hardly know?
I should call her and see how she’s doing.
I should take dinner to that family.
I wonder if I could take my neighbor’s kids for a couple hours.
I should drop a note in the mail to her and tell her how much I appreciate her.
I should see if so-and-so needs help with cleaning.
Today I encourage you to be tuned in to those feelings, those thoughts, those promptings. This is the season of love. Give of yourself and your time and your talents. Pass some warm & fuzzies on to someone else.
