It’s rare that I walk outside. With temperatures soaring to 100 degrees almost every day, I choose to stay indoors as much as I can. Today, however, I felt like going for a walk outside. I didn’t bring my lunch to work, so I thought it would be fun to walk down the street and get something from my favorite little salad place.
It turned out that my favorite little salad place was closed down, so I ended up going to this new deli, which turned out to be awesome. Since it was my first time there, the manager was really helpful in letting me know what he thought the best sandwiches were. Then, as I was about to pay for my sandwich and chips, the manager gave me a free chocolate chip cookie. Woo-hoo!
As I was walking back to work, I started thinking about how there is so much joy in the little things in life – hearing the sound of cars speeding by, seeing people smiling and laughing with one another, feeling the wind blowing against my skin, and getting a free chocolate chip cookie. It’s all of these little things that bring such a big smile to my face.
Want to know something else that makes me smile? It’s this song by Jamie Grace.
Have a great weekend everyone, and remember to enjoy the little things.
