Small Things

Lots has been said about small stuff . . .

Don't sweat the small stuff.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
There are so small churches, just small people.
This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
You may be capable of great things, but life consists of small things.
A small leak can sink a great ship.
But my favorite is this Bible verse found in Zechariah 4:10 - For who has despised the day of small things?
I have learned to look for the small stuff . . . be thankful for the small stuff . . . celebrate the small stuff . . . and not fall into the mindset that it's just the big stuff that counts. I'm sure I've already lost you. But that's okay. I have a small thing to celebrate with you; however, it really isn't small to me at all. It's H U G E! But I know to you, it's a small thing. As a matter of fact, before this happened to me, I thought driveways were small things, too. Actually, I've never even thought about driveways at all. But that all changed about a week and a half ago when Mason, Hannah Kate and I watched as trees were uprooted and a culvert was installed for our new driveway.

How exciting!! Crazy how we get excited over culverts and driveways :) You never knew playing in the dirt could be so much fun until it's your new driveway and house being built. Enjoy the process, it'll be done before you know it. You might not feel like it at times, but it will :)
