the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.

for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
