It's The Little Things...

Sometimes it's the little things in life that you just got to stop and admire.

Last Tuesday night we were at the airport waiting for our new puppy to come home (more on that sometime).  While we were sitting there waiting, I was bored so I was on my mom's phone.  She told me to look up and it was the sweetest thing that was before me.  A soldier had just come home and his sweetheart was in a black dress with her pink purse.  My mom said she saw her just bursting with excitement as he came down the escalator.  She ran to him and he swept her up into his arms.  People started to clap. I did, too.  It was beautiful.  They just kept embracing, kissing, and holding on to each other for all they were worth.  As you all know, I love to read Christian Romance books, but this, this was the real deal.  It was SO sweet.  My eyes even filled with tears.  It such a lovely thing to witness. I am grateful I was able to behold that lovely moment.

My brother finished his dance class that he was doing.  So, on his last day we got to go see him dance.  He did a great job!  And his teacher loved the way I was dressed.  She said she used to dress vintage, too.  But once she started having children she stopped. She said she has clothes from the 20s to the 60s.  It was really nice to talk with someone who loves vintage clothing like I do.

I wasn't feeling well over a week ago.  My stomach hurt and I just wasn't doing well.  I was laying on the couch and my dog, Pepper, came over and laid by me.  I think she knew I wasn't feeling good and she just wanted to be near me.  Sweet baby. <3

This last month, we watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  I really love Captain Barbossa.  He is the pirate of pirates.  Shoot, I think he is more of a pirate than Captain Jack Sparrow!  Anyways, I heard that they were thinking of giving him, Barbossa, a daughter in the new film coming out.  For whatever reason they decided not to.  I thought if they eventually did give him a daughter, it would be a lot of fun to play her.  I told my family this and they thought it would be cool, too.  Then my sweet brother told me, "you're too pretty to play his daughter." What a nice compliment I wasn't expecting.  Thanks, Zach. <3

They say to take time to stop and "smell the roses," but I think it also goes for to stop and "enjoy each little moment."  Time doesn't stop or slow for anyone.  I wish it did, but it doesn't.  Sometimes it's nice to take a moment and appreciate the little things that make life special.  Well, I hope you enjoyed this little post.  Happy May and thanks for reading! Many blessings to you and your family! ~Morgan
