The Little Things in Life


A smile costs nothing, but gives much………It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship…….It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile; Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

Quick Moments


Welp…. what do you do when you are about to walk to your car and your son sees a big tall tree and he RUNS and climbs up the branches!!!!???!!!!??? Well, if it is me – I TAKE PHOTOS!

Quick and Random moments seem to hold the most value…the most importance and great memories with friends and family!

My life as well as my crazy son have soo soo many ” all of a sudden moments ” that a camera always need to be available! I used to be the type of mother who NEVER wanted my son to get dirty and wanted him to remain like a crazy walking fashion forwad and preppy Coleman Billboard!  tell you…. he was just as shocked as I was when I allowed him to just go and run and jump around in the grass and just climb trees at random….. ( with no fussing saying  – your going to get DIRTY!! ) LOL

I did not even have the heart to fuss at him and REMIND HIM that I needed to go home and rest because I have been down for the count…tied up in wires….and being poked for the last 2 days. Right when I was thinking that to myself – he came over and just grabbed me and hugged me and said that he was so happy to see that you are alright!……

Well after that good and sweet love and concern from my boy…. I decided to do what he was doing… hanging on the tree! LOL… I am only entitled to live once …..so enjoying each moment instead of each random day is really blessing me…

I guess this would be a great example of STOPPING and smelling the roses! It was nice to not be stuck to an agenda and letting my VERY mature 9 1/2 year old boy just be a child “at total random”……… He felt and looked so FREE and so did I! Living in the moment is a nice feeling!!!
