The little moments

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ~Robert Brault
How often do we ignore the sunset and miss this great beauty? I know I often forget these small things that spread happiness, and sadly focus on the things that cause stress. But look at the gift Heavenly Father gave me today. A gorgous sunset that I got to see from my backyard. Look at all the colors he shared with me, because he loves me. And yes there are plenty of things that seem to be overwhelming that often stop me from looking around a noticing the sunset, or the joke, or the smile that someone shares with me... finals, white glove, packing and moving, trying to fullfill my calling, and trying to have a social life.... And all of these things are important. But obviously they aren't everything. In less than a week all of these will be gone. Finals will be over, my apartment will hopefully be clean, and to tell the truth it won't even be my apartment anymore... I'm moving yet again. But it's these little things that will bring me true joy. The sunset, time spent with friends doing nothing, talking with family or roommates or just serving someone else... yes these all could be big time consuming things, or they could be just that little break that gives you the strength to make it through your next big obstacle... because this is life... until you die there will always be something else to come, both the good and the bad. What am I going to focus on?

Well I guess I'm going to try this blogging thing

As usual I am very good at getting distracted. And this time I got distracted by checking out some other people's blogs and low and behold now I've created my own. Wisdom would tell me that today would not be the brightest day to set this up, but who always pays attention to that... There would be no fun in that. Besides the choice of making a blog entry or study for a Final that closes in 4 hrs... is no toss up. The blog's more fun. But sadly I do have a final that closes in less than 4 hrs so I guess I better get off, but hopefully there will be more postings soon to come.
