I write this as I am sitting outside enjoying a gorgeous sunny afternoon in The Mitten. This afternoon has me sitting in my favorite spot on the best, yeah I said it, THE BEST college campus on Earth.

I sit here enjoying the little things:

The warm sun on my skin.

The students walking by with determination in their step.

The train in the distance.

The birds singing a chorus.

The butterfly that just flitted by.

The River meandering along.

The bug… WHAT THE!? Eww. That’s a gross bug…

Anywho, I am re-blogging this because Dr. Elko is preaching good this week! He talks on mindfulness and noticing the things around you. He speaks to even you, who just rolled your eyes and thought “I am too busy”… Maybe especially you.

little things

Be mindful my friends.

Notice the little things because as the quote goes… Sometimes they will be big things.

This speaks to a place deep in my soul. In my humanness I desire to connect with people. Sometimes I learn those people aren’t capable of that same connection. They aren’t capable of giving or even receiving the connection. It is in this space there is sadness and pain…

But I have learned that it is also in this space that there is such freedom to love with reckless abandon.

Just love.

Pure unadulterated love.

It is in this space that miracles can happen.

Be terribly real.

It may cause pain… It may also cause a miracle.
