Today I realized a few tiny gifts that just made my day…these are my favorite kind of presents, you know the ones, they hit you by surprise and could have flown right past you if you hadn’t slowed down to acknowledge them.
Three tiny gifts…
1. my kid’s art
my son’s glue drawing of tiny gifts (the inspiration for my oh so cool title to this post)
2. the grandma greatness
Today I took my son to the doctor’s for a check up. While I was waiting to pick up vitamins for him, an older woman walked in. I peered around her to see Cameron when she stopped me and said…
“you have a really nice figure. Wish I was like that again!”
Now if that ain’t an early Christmas present, I don’t know what is. :) In my opinion a compliment like that from an older grandma by far surpasses one coming from a random guy. Am I showing my age?
That made my day.
3. forgotten recipes
How cool is this…we had a garage sale this past weekend and in our loot was a recipe book. The kind you fill out. I went to grab it and out fell a stack of loose recipe cards. They had been filled out nine years ago at my wedding shower by my closest friends and family.
It was so neat to see the handwriting of my friends and read their instructions. I can’t wait to try their recipes!
