“Greatness is a lot of small things done well.” ~ Ray Lewis
While large jobs that are completed are wonderful . . .Sometimes the small jobs that are many and varied, when combined, contribute to a greater sense of accomplishment than one large job. Take, for instance, that glass pendant chain pull pictured to the left. While not a large item per se, when one’s closet lightbulb pull chain snaps and is irreparable, the simple act of replacing it is quite the accomplishment. Not to mention how many wardrobe snafu’s may be avoided when light is available to clearly see the clothing being selected.
Then we have the pictures. There is one in particular that I love and for a few days it has leaned against the bedroom wall and now . . . now, it is gracing the wall directly across from my bed where I can see it when I wake.
The dining room table has arrived and is in place with the leaves — without them it looked like doll furniture compared to the scale of the room. Now to find a tablecloth for it that fits the timeframe of the house. But in the meantime, my sewing machine is set up and ready to rumble.
MelBeth sent me a lovely bracelet that is an essential oil diffuser for my birthday. Since this was a lazy no-plans weekend day, I wore it rather than my watch. It was wonderful to catch a subtle whiff of my selected oils: lavender, lemon, bergamot and cedarwood. I’m sure this will be a favorite piece that I wear often. I have seen them and wanted to have one, but never broke down and purchased it.
All of these are small things, but I delight in them. They make me happy and bring me joy when I see them.
And for the grand finale of the day. . .
