I Live for Little Moments

I need to appreciate these, and many other little moments, more often. They are silly, they happen all the time, but they provide true joy in life.

I love when...
-all the traffic lights ahead turn green.
-Tracy lets me hold the remote and decide what to watch (meaning not sports).
-I find a diamond in the rough at a garage sale for super cheap.
-the last adorable shirt is my size and is on sale.
-Tracy makes dinner, so I don't have to after a long day (even if he's had a long day too).
-I get a text from my sister or a really good friend telling me a funny story.
-I organize a small corner of our landfill-like apartment.
-people think to ask me for help with something.
-I can cross off the last item on a long to-do list.
-the total of a purchase comes to an exact dollar amount.
-I catch the clock at 12:34 p.m.
-I call home and hear my little sister call my name excitedly in the background.
-my niece says she wants to be like me.
-Tracy calls me his pretty lady.

Little moments or God's tender mercies are everywhere. I don't think I can write all of the down, and even if I did, I don't think anyone would want to read all of them, except me. I'm so happy for them, and I wouldn't trade them for anything.


  1. I love this post! I need to think about this kind of stuff more often too.

    I actually just bought some stuff at Kohl's today and it came to an exact dollar amount. That really is exciting. :) I also like when people ask me for help with something, but I'd never really thought about it until you mentioned it.

    Thanks girl! I hope things are great!

  2. Hey Lacey,

    I love your list...I need to pay attention to the little things too; they're all around us but too often I don't notice. Thanks for the reminder.

    Hope all is well with you!

  3. It's crazy how little stuff like that happens all the time and how easy it is to not notice or appreciate it. Thanks for the reminder sis!

  4. My favorite little moment today was when my cute daughter called me. You are such a blessing in my life!
