Today I am grateful for small moments.
A lovely text from an old friend.
A library drop-by-to-say-hi from the one I love.
A kind gesture from a TA, an understanding glance at a classmate, coming home to dinner being put in the oven when I was not in the greatest mood.
I am grateful for the little moments, because sometimes those little moments end up being big moments when you look back on your best days.
And I think there is so much value in appreciating the present for what it is. Sometimes we need to take a step back in order to realize the sweet pleasure of taking a breath and just…being.
