Life's Simple Joys

Today, it rained non-stop.  Grey skies from the a.m. to p.m.  A total rain boots day. Fast forward to noon and I receive this lovely message on my lunch. It instantly brought a smile to my face.

I work at a communications agency.  One of the client accounts I manage is a restaurant known for its rich local history.  Each month our staff meeting is catered by this restaurant. Today, I pulled my order out of the box to find the sweetest message from the owner.

Isn't funny how the smallest things can bring a great smile to your face?  It's all about the little things that make a big difference.  

The restaurant owner definitely made me happy when skies were grey.

Sometimes it seems we get caught up in life's major accomplishments, like finishing a degree, landing a dream job or winning an award. As life goes on, I hope that I remember the many little things that bring me happiness too.

Cheers to sunshine on this rainy day!


  1. it really is the little things that matter and make a difference - even seeing that made me smile! :-)

  2. That is just the sweetest! Not only is it a sweet compliment, but it shows they are thinking about you, too! That would've made my weekend, too!

  3. That was nice of them to take the time to write that. It's those simple acts of thoughtfulness that can give you sudden bursts of perspective about just being nice and being aware of others. Glad you shared this :)


I love hearing from you! It makes my day. Really, it does!
