Gee, Thanks For The Little Things

24 Nov

Turkey. Sweet potatoes. Stuffing. Pumpkin pie. Key elements to the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner. But the most important component? Love.

Little moment for the heart: my kitty cat dipped in paint from holiday home improvements.

Love is what takes those little moments around the table and turn them into memories. Love is what makes Thanksgiving the ultimate homecoming experience. When I return home for Thanksgiving, I take stock of the little things: the view from my bedroom window, the photographs hung on the walls, the familiar yet indescribable smell that can only be found at home, the feel of my puppy dog’s fur against my finger tips as I scratch the top of her muppet-looking head…

There’s nothing like coming home to the little things. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.

Gee, There’s a Thought

20 May

My life is slightly messy right now as I transition from college to real world. My belongings are scattered along with my brain. If the world really does end tomorrow, I might not notice because I’m so frazzled.

But while searching through my belongings in my family’s house, I stumbled upon a little box that I created a few years ago in a crafty phase.

It’s simple and straightforward, yet completely ambiguous. Love above all else? Love whoever’s up there? It can be whatever you want it to be in any moment.

For me, I’m gonna try to remember to love. Even when the job hunt gets me frustrated and stressed. There’s always love.
