I love that line. It shows that life is not really about all the big things in our life, it's the little things. We will all remember the big moments-a wedding, a birth, a death. However, the tiniest of moments, the day to day living that we do is really what makes up who we are and what life is.
I love the picture I posted above. I had forgotten about it until tonight as I took a little walk down memory lane. This was taken in our back yard when we still lived in Nevada. Yes, that is actually the middle of the desert, not the beach. It was a sand pile, left over from some project! My kids spent an hour, just playing in it and here-they buried their little sister! It was an ordinary day. We ate breakfast, did chores, ate lunch, played, cleaned up, etc. There was nothing special about it, at all. But this picture will always remind me of a morning when my kids created their own little beach experience. I feel a bit of sadness to see them looking so young and thinking of how fast it goes. This photo is priceless to me.
So, think of the things you do each day. Think of the least important thing you do and scrap about it. A year from now, 10 years from now and even 50 years from now, it will be important enough.
