the small things...

one

step

at

a

time
{picture taken on our vaca}
i feel happy seeing that our new friend in the kitchen...provides so much fun for the girls...

they keep bringing the step stool out of the restroom and placing it in front of the window...

they share it...

they get giddy and excited about their new special place...

there used to be a small breakfast table in front of the window until our friend arrived...

and now it is upstairs in the loft...

so today I am smiling at them...

taking it

one
step
at
a
time ~

because today I must do that...

and I am smiling at my girls looking out the window...


hearing their conversation which went a little like this...

"Momma...a puma!!!...Momma look...a puma!" {it really is just a big cat ~ and that was Hayley by the way}

And Madison replying:

"Hayley it is not a puma...it's a big cat!"

"puma...PUMA"...

"it's a big cat Hayley"...

And then the conversation starts all over again...

I love that...and hearing that...


so today...I'm thinking of the small things and taking it

one

step

at

a

time...

because some days...that is just what you have to do

even if you feel like there is a blank slate...uncertainty...or feel as though the truth is buried

the answers will be there...they always are...it just may not be in our {my} timing perhaps...

I love the little things...they are my favorite:)
