The small things in life

We are in the middle of a busy period at work - It may even interfere with my blogging for a period! We have also been having a period of heavy rain and some of you may remember a picture taken out of my office window some days ago showing nothing but various shades of grey.

Today started the same way. In black and white. A colleague and I sighed as we put our noses to the grindstone. This we did to such a degree that we hardly noticed anything else until about lunchtime, when suddenly looking up and out found - a blue sky and sunshine!


It didn't last for long, but it felt good while it did. Something lifted off our shoulders.

Conclusion: Enjoy the small things in life while you can - they make the difference between a good and a bad day.

I agree with you.
It`s just like i wrote on my blog the other day. We remember the moments. Not all the days, months etc. Wishing you a nice Friday! Enjoy the small things. :)
