The Little Things

Some say "the little things are the big things."

Well, my little laptop is creating a big holdup for me on several of my digital projects. Yes, believe it or not, my 8 month old computer has once again been sent out for a new hard drive! I am without my files, my pictures, my online favorites list, and my scrapbook programs.
Boo Woo.

What is the lesson to be learned in this minor set back?
Although some little things are the big things, I don't need to make big things out of every little thing...

little things that should stay little:
1) dishes that don't make it into the dishwasher as quickly as I wish they would
2) sloppy boots that come in on the carpet
3) toys scattered around the kids' bedroom
4) hastily made comments that were not meant to offend

little things that should be big:
1) the times I play with the kids
2) the moments that Kevin and I have to visit without distractions
3) the simple traditions of eating meals together as a family and reading before bedtime
4) catching Gavin and Anne Hope as they treat each other with kindness, love, and respect
