The Little Things: Nic, 7.25.11.

So often, we get caught up in our day to day routines and forget to appreciate the little things in life.  In my Little Things series, I like to honor the details that are making me happy today. Now, I ask my readers to send me a photo and note about what is making THEM happy today.

Nic says,

I would call this the little big things…

My brother, Ben and sister-in-law are about to have the worst day of their life and it’s going to mean that my sister-in-law needs to be in hospital overnight, Ben wants to be with her so I’m going to theirs to take care of my 20 month old nephew. During the conversation with my brother about all that’s going on and nephew’s routine etc, he asks me how I am, what’s going on with me. I’m humbled by how in the middle of all this tragedy, my brother still finds the time to find out about me and it totally changes how I think about my life and reminds me of how I’d like to be.
