One word challenge: Remember

Remembering and appreciating the little things in life is a simple thing we can do to make ourselves happy, even just for the moment. Sometimes little things are more precious and valuable than the big things. We should appreciate these things. Sometimes we forget about the little things and take them for granted. Selfish, entitled, materialistic people often do not take the time to appreciate these things and want everything the big and the best. When we remember the little things, we become more happy and appreciative about what life has to offer.

I remember and appreciate all the little things. I remember when I went over to a family friend’s house and her granddaughter came running to me, screaming my name and her laugh when my friend pushed us around my wheelchair. I remember chasing the grandson around my house and how much fun we had. I will always remember these little moments. I find it really important to remember these things and not get caught up in the bigger and better. I never take a precious little moment for granted and remember each moment. Sometimes these things may be gone and I will never see it again. It’s important to remember the little moments, but it’s also important to appreciate the physical things around us to. One thing I appreciate is that even though the snow is cold and is really hard for me to get around, it is something beautiful to look at when we’re stuck inside.
