Default Let me love the little things

As a spin off from the thread about random things you like, I thought of this. I use to have this little book and even though I'm not of an organized religion, I do have an appreciative heart for the little things and I just love this little prayer. And I also really love sunshine on my kitchen floor. What little things do you especially love and that make you happy?

Quote:
LITTLE THINGS

Dear God, please give to me a thankful heart for little things - for sunshine on my kitchen floor for news the postman brings... Grant me appreciation of small joys that're mine - the children's birthday parties my honeysuckle vine. The clean, fresh smell of clothes just washed the ivy on my wall. The children's thrilled delight to wake and find the first snowfall. For robins in the springtime and autumn's crispy weather - For leaves that crunch friends in for lunch And laughter shared together. ...I do not ask contentment That would ambition stay But let me love the little things I find along the way. Helen Lowrie Marshall
