The Little Things: Sara, 3.15.11.

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.

Sara says,

Almost every day I get to catch this view out of my bedroom window – the sun setting deep over the Pacific Ocean, illuminating the sky with breathtaking colors. It’s usually after a long day at work, and catching a view of this always reminds me that the world is much bigger than my small little piece of it, and that greater things are occurring regardless of how my day unfolds itself. Upon hearing about tragedies like Japan’s earthquake/tsunami, I know that no matter how bad my day may seem, I’m extremely fortunate to come back to a home where I can sit in my bed and watch the sky light up as if it’s just for me. Little things like this can always put a smile on my face. 🙂
