It’s that time of year when our kids are transitioning from one grade to another, goals are met and checked off of the “lists”, accomplishment is tangible in the air, tears of joy fill our hearts and minds. It’s a time of movement into the next step of our path in this walk of life.
We are so grateful, grateful for those moments our kids, maybe even ourselves, have been working towards achieving a true goal and it‘s been achieved!. It is easy to identify, congratulate, high five these big moments, not always easy to see the small ones that come before, or in between.
What if we look for the small moments and celebrate those too? Not a trophy to everyone syndrome but an acknowledgment of growth within ourselves, our children, our friends, in a day to day space?
So, in these next few weeks, as we see the big moments, I think we should remember to celebrate the little moments too. We should reflect on how our every day actions, our every day routine, even sometimes feeling mundane, make the big moments possible.
The big moments are easy to pinpoint, it’s the small ones that take some practice in finding. Whatever you will be celebrating, if you will be celebrating, may there be much happiness to fill your heart. Praise those BIG moments; and may the TINISEST ones fill your heart and minds too.
