The Little Things

Posted in thoughts, word by krisyee on May 16, 2012

Whether it has to do with friends or family, and even strangers, husband or wife, girlfriend or boyfriend, to sights and sounds, smells and touch…

…it’s all about the little things.


Like when your mom leaves you a note on your bathroom mirror to have a good day.

Your friends stopping by your work to bring you food or coffee for no reason.

Waking up to a kiss from your boyfriend. Or better yet waking up in his arms.

Waking up to the sun shining through your blinds.

Coming home to flowers on your nightstand. Or receiving a package from a friend who lives in another country.

Falling asleep to the sound of the rain.

Your mom delivering home made baked cookies to your apartment. Or walking by the smell of fresh baked bread.

Hearing the sound of your baby laugh.

The giddy feeling he gives you when he smiles at you. Or how beautiful she looks when she’s happy.

Moments where you and your friends are laughing so hard over something that wasn’t even that funny.

Getting a text or call from your friend that’s on the other side of the country just to say “hi”. Or from the other side of the world.

Putting on clothes right out of the dryer, making you feel all warm and cozy. Especially warm socks.

Getting into bed with fresh sheets. Or digging your bare toes into a plush carpet.

Taking a nap to the sound of the ocean.

Waking up to a text from him saying good morning.

It’s the feeling you get when you hear the click of a photo being taken from a film camera.

The feeling you get when someone tells you that you made their day. Or just the feeling you get knowing you have helped someone.

Getting a fresh batch of french fries from McDonalds.

The way he holds your hand. Or kisses you on the forehead.

When a baby grabs one of your fingers with their whole hand.

Him calling you beautiful. Or how handsome he looks dressed up.

That one balloon that became a yearly tradition between you and your sister.

And just that simple feeling of being happy.

The list can go on and on…


It’s simple…sometimes it’s the little things that count.
