The little things in life...

...are the big things. They bring smile to your face, and that counts. I had the opportunity to meet a wise man some years ago and learn this little wisdom from him. He was looking excitedly at his picture in the newspaper, which seemed unbelievable considering that his line of job inevitably put him in the media spotlight from time to time. But he told me it has never ceased to excite him. I thought it was good, that someone considerably famous can feel that way. No doubt, it contributes to his pleasant personality.

I understand the sentiment well now. It is like the excitement to experience hail rain. Since in our place we never get snow, and it doesn't hail often, it the closest experience we've got to snow. So when it hailed last Saturday, we let ourselves be carried away in the excitement, stopping the car just to get some pictures to capture the moments.

It was just a small thing but one day, I know I'll look back and see that it is the small things that are big in my life :-)
