When my great grandma Rose died several years ago her stuff was split up for anyone who wanted something. I ended up with a simple set of daily sayings, sometimes prayers, sometimes phrases or quotes. They are printed on small pieces of paper and held together with two metal rings. The little sayings live in my kitchen drawer so I can reference them each morning with breakfast. Here is what the rolodex told me the other day:
"Don't pray for rain if you are going to complain about the mud."
I needed that little nudge so hard that day, and most days I can use the sayings it spews.
The little things in life.
Like trying to take a nap on the couch with a wiener dog hogging the space ;-)
Little things are sooooooo good.
