The Sweetest Things

I am learning that the sweetest things come in unlikely moments. A warm chocolate treat with my little boy, a rainy day at the lake, and a steamy cup of coffee are just a few sweet things in life. So often I find myself trying create moments when actually they are all around me. Hearing the voices raise together in church to songs of worship, seeing the smile on the face of my mother when we share an afternoon, or watching my husband cheer on his little boys' basketball team are things that are sprinkled with sweetness. Hopefully, this year, I will learn to savor the sweet things a little longer, and forget the bitter times a little more quickly. So, pass the treats, put on the fuzzy socks, and sigh the sweet sigh of contentment as often as you can. Chocolate anyone?
