It's the Little Things

Mondays are hard. Plain and simple. Sometime's (okay, all the time) it's so easy to just roll over and grab some more sleep after a long weekend. So, instead of dwelling on the fact that it's Monday, I'm gonna start looking at the positives and give thanks for the little things.

I'm starting a new weekly link up every Monday. We're gonna give thanks for the little things. Those little God winks that let us know that He hasn't forgotten about us Those little things that make your heart pitter patter on a bum day. Those little things that bring light into a dull day.

Or any big things, for that matter. It's just a way to look at the positive when our minds normally wants to look at the negative.



I was nannying all week long from 8-5. I was exhausted, but then a friend came over to play with the kids. God provided a moment of rest where I could drink my coffee, read my book, and listen to music. I was so thankful for this.


I get excited over little things. So when I found this headband that was perfect for 4th of July, I was pretty excited. My headband made the heat a little more bearable. 


I finally got the star picture I wanted. Thanks to my mom who was very good at taking directions. It's the little things like this that make me go to bed with a full heart. 

So, what little things are you thankful for today? Link up below! And happy Monday!

  6. It's great to remember all of the little things in a day. One of my favorite quotes is "every day may not be good, but there is good in every day" :)
