Bits of Sweetness: Bits of Splendor Monday

Bits of Splendor Monday

I am realizing how much I love the little things right now.
Things like our kitchen window greenhouse 

Toasted bagel sandwiches with ranch instead of mayo, 
and the beautiful simplicity of flowers to enjoy it with!

So many good thoughts from church Sunday including this quote:
"A leader is someone who can blaze a trail, keep ahead, and at the same time care for, 
protect, encourage, train and enable those following him."
A great leader is not one who solely puts his needs first,
but honors the needs of others above himself.
It is hard to do, but so rewarding.
It's good for me to find ways to apply it to myself.
It might look like choosing to spend time with 
Andrew rather than being on Facebook.
Or, doing something I know Josh loves 
rather than insisting on what I want.

Other little things I love?
Time with good friends. 
(Especially when that involves a pedicure and good Mexican food!!)
I love though, that friends like this don't require having anything super 
special in order to have a good time.

I love the hilarious games of Draw Something
and especially being able to play them with my brother who is in the Navy
and across the country right now.

I am loving inexpensive fun like glowstick baths!
(Target currently has a tube of 15 in their dollar section!!)

Sometimes I wish for the big & spectacular moments, but looking back, I am coming to realize that it truly is the little day-to-day things that make me smile the most, and that make up the most of my memories.

What little things are you feeling blessed for lately?

  6. Mmmm, ranch :o)  Good idea with the glow things in the tub!  My kids would get a kick out of that.  Some small things Im enjoying?  My birthday celebrated with my sister and her family.  The taste of Pizza Hut pizza and game playing afterwards.  Waking up on my birthday and having my sweet family sing happy birthday to me.  Having my husband home for a week from work <3
