Have you ever noticed it is the seemingly smallest of things that will drive you crazy?
The little pinprick troubles that annoy you?
Like little mosquitos buzzing around your head and in your ear, you swat fruitlessly at the tiny twirps (well, they CAN get pretty big in Alaska!) as you let them persistently get your goat?
Maybe it is the squeak (like in my swivel recliner!) or the squeaking wheels that grind away?
But what does it all add up to?
Nothing more than robbing you of the joy you are filled with, the grace that overflows, given to you as you wake up new each day.
When you focus on those smallest of things, you let it steal away precious time that could be spent on things that TRULY matter – on the things of the day are important and make a difference.
So today, when those smallest of things come at you, don’t let them rob the joy and peace that shine from your face – that joy that others look for in you, counting on in you, because of the incredible, unmistakable person you are in their lives.
