Today I thought I would talk about little things.  The things we take for granted.   What are some things that you really don’t think about while you are doing them?  Making a meal, doing laundry, taking children to school, driving a car, following a recipe, doing dishes, vacuuming , dusting, sweeping, making a bed, etc. are a few things that we do without thinking too much about them.  We just do them.  What if you had to deliberately think about how to do something before you did it? You would have to choose what you were going to do based on the difficulty of the job. That is how it is sometimes with fibromyalgia.   Depending on whether you are having a flare, you have to choose wisely your activities for the day.   Some days you have the energy of a 5-year-old and feel like you are “supermom” . Those are the days that I have to guard myself to not get overwhelmed and push myself too far.

For over a year now, I have been too sick to do “the little things”.  I thank God that I have a supportive family that has stepped up and done things when I couldn’t.   I am steadily getting better and I have begun doing some of the little things again. I have made meals and drove kids to school. I have done laundry and dishes. I have vacuumed and folded clothes. These are things that may seem trivial to you. But to me, they are the best things in the world.

You don’t know how important the little things are until you are no longer able to do them.  I may not always remember how to do things and the name of certain things.  As long as I can, I want to do the little things.  That is worth more than rubies , diamonds, or gold.  Little things are priceless treasures that cannot be bought. The other thing that I realized through this entire time is that it’s about perspective.  I read a card the other day that said, “Attitude is everything”.  When I focus on the Lord and on my many blessings, my life doesn’t seem so bland.  But when I focus on what I don’t have , then my outlook is sour.  I don’t know about you, but I am not a sour grape.


Remember  to enjoy the “little things”.  Focus on your many blessings.  Attitude is everything. Remember God loves you and so do I .
