Loved {#SOL2016 Day 3}

It's nearly 9:00 and I'm just getting the chance to sit down today for the first time and read blog posts and write my own.  I'm still very excited to be a part of the Slice of Life writing challenge.  I've read so many great posts over the past few days and followed about another hundred blogs.  It's inspired me to write again, which hasn't happened in awhile since this challenge started.

I'm not going to lie, today... I'm exhausted. Sometimes by the end of the week that happens with work and home and life.  So I'm going to keep it short and sweet.  I felt so LOVED tonight as I was cleaning.  YES cleaning!  This week was my birthday (March 1st) and things that I've collected from others to celebrate had made their way into several piles all over the kitchen counter.  When my husband mentioned it needed to be cleaned, I knew it had to be bad.

Even though it was the last thing that I wanted to do so late I took the time to go through everything and also finally open a package that was delivered today from a great friend.  A great friend with whom I used to see and spend time with all of the time.  Now we don't live close and time is very precious as it doesn't happen often.

As I opened her gift and saw my 'favorite things' I couldn't help but smile and then look around at everything surrounding me.  They were small things... notes, cards, my favorite candy or school supplies... but they were things that make me happy.  To know that people care so much to know these 'little' things made me remember how loved I am.  It's always those little things that mean the most.  Tonight, it really made me stop and think about all of the little things that those that love me do for me and what I do for them.

What little things to you do for others?  What little things do you appreciate that are done for you?
