"Just let your pile of good things grow."

Life is happening. And it's happening fast. And it's happening whether we are paying attention, or not. The days can seem monotonous...get up, get dressed, go to work, come home, cook dinner, go to bed. Lather, rinse, repeat.

But in between all of that so many good things are happening. Like eating ice cream and laughing so hard we cry (and maybe even pee a little!). Watching sunsets and taking long drives to nowhere just to enjoy the view. Smiling at strangers and offering a helping hand when given the opportunity. Spending the early morning hours watching the garden grow and listening to the neighborhood wake up. Stopping in the middle of chores to notice that dusk is happening, and maybe even grabbing the camera to try and capture it. Loading up the canoe on a rainy day and getting out on the dimpled water to watch the herons fly and the ducks bob for their breakfast.

This is a small pile of my good things...and I'm adding to it, one good thing at a time.
