A wise man once told me that if you don't give yourself time to enjoy the little things in life, then you will not be able to find joy in the big things in life. At first, I had no idea what he was talking about. I was so focused on the future and what it held for my husband and I, that I missed all the little things that would have made those years less stressful.

I don't mean stop at every little thing you see and stare at it for hours. I mean that you should enjoy the little hiccups that come in your way and just say that it is all part of the journey. One of such little things that I have come to love is those saturday mornings when my husband and I clean guns while we watch our show. Just a little bit of time that we steal from the world where we don't have to worry about anything except what we are doing. It is little snippets of time that make up life, and it is those that people tend to forget about.
