Little things

Sunshine was not in the forecast today and I thought 
about abandoning my daily walk.  

Skies remained grey and gloomy as the morning dew clung beyond its hour. 


Instead of clipping along to the words of the latest book on my iPod, 
I grabbed my camera.

And instead of feeling blue about the dismal day, I decided not to concentrate on grey clouds, 
but on mother earth and her activities.

She did not disappoint me.

By the time I had arrived back home, I had dozens of images
to be happy 
that I had this day.

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
