"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings" (Rodgers and Hammerstein)

It's good to stop and make a list of some of the small things, the tiny special moments that happen in spite of our brisk and busy lifestyles.

Things like clean sheets against your skin as you crawl into bed at night.  Like sitting in a protected place with the warm morning sun shining to warm you.  Like slipping chilly fingers into new gloves on a cold fall morning.   

These things are pure joy. You just have to stop and notice them to know how lucky you are.
