It’s still the little things


That brighten a day.

Waking up feeling sad for not being there for a family member; but being relieved and glad not to make a long trip.
Looking out to find fog, but knowing that the sun will break through later.
Following the normal routine, yet brightened by a conversation in the coffee shop.
Going about one’s day, nothing extraordinary planned, yet every bit of it precious by dint of being here to enjoy it.

The cheap ceramic Christmas Tree – yet it is a reminder of the season and being run on battery not in danger of harming anyone if I inadvertently forget to turn it off.
