It’s the little things in this walk of life…. jump in the puddles 🦩

Best part of life is the little things we find along the way

I have been lucky during this pandemic to be in a climate that has sunshine ☀️and warm weather . With all kinds of time on our hands … Rustin and I don our sneakers and hit the sidewalks. Soaking up the sun and taking advantage of our mostly sunny days. We have really logged the miles.

The disadvantage of being in my tropic paradise right now is I’m 1,000’s of miles from my best friend ,my Mom. I decided to take my Mom with us on our daily strolls by taking pictures as we exercise and post my finds on my Mother’s Facebook wall. The only rule to our “walks” is no duplicate pictures . Something fresh and new.

Butterfly’s along the way…

Because we are logging miles and going quite the distance…. we consistently travel the same paths. What I have noticed is that these walks really have opened my eyes and heart to find new pictures for my mom. A fresh outlook each walk. I love going with the challenge of an open heart and mind to notice the “ little things”. Don’t get me wrong, I admire the lovely homes with the well manicured lawns and and pristine gardens… however I’m finding that the “ awwwww” pictures… the daughter escorting her mom, the kids that play, the women cycling with her dog, butterfly’s, birds , the pictures can be endless and and the new daily finds turn out to be the best part of our walks.

My turn to help you Mom❤️
Love this dog … living his best life😃

My walks have me thinking of the endless list that make my heart happy and full. Things such as seashells, sunsets , the sound of the ocean, a call from a friend, naps,fresh cut grass, flowers in Folgers cans ,lemonade stands, fresh baked cookies, laughs, finding money in your pocket, porch swings,baths , puppies, sidewalk chalk art, clean sheets,smiles from strangers, oysters ,hugs,puddles … the list could go on and on!

I’m thankful for these walks that they have reminded me to be thankful for the little things and to jump in a puddle or two along the way during this walk of life. And I’m thankful for my mom for always telling me to “make my own happiness. “That bit of advice is really coming in handy now during this slow rolling time . Outlook for the walk is sunny for today so we will be hitting the sidewalks and hopefully a puddle or two along the way. And of course looking for “the Little Things”

Stay Well, Stay Healthy, Drink the Good wine and Strong Coffee in Slippers, keep following your TRUE NORTH. 🦩out

  3. I love that you are doing this for your Mom. I’m sure it brightens her day and makes her feel your love. I, too, love seeing all the families in my neighborhood out walking these days. It makes me smile. I’ve always been one to notice things on my walks. God provides us with such amazing things to see everyday. It doesn’t surprise me that you see them, too. You have a beautiful soul that seeks out the beauty in all things.

  4. You’re a breath of fresh air, Kitty! Appreciating the little things while we slow down has been one of the silver linings in all of this. Thanks for sharing your nature walks with Mom, and with all of us.
