Little things 

Today we went to our favorite French bakery for subs and pastries. As we sat overlooking the beach and  the waves crashing on the shore I felt really happy. 

Just a few months ago my in-laws came to visit and brought me the same delicious pastry that I was eating today. My favorite thing to eat and it made me so sad that I was too sick to enjoy it. 

So as I devoured my Iroiquois – a sugar cookies with a mountain of frosting and covered with chocolate – I felt thankful for the little things in life that make me happy. 

And yes, I did get frosting up my nose as I bit into it.
