“I will Feel a Glow just Thinking of You.”
“And the way you look tonight.” Isn’t that just the most decadent song? Can’t you just feel, and remember, that moment when someone in your life stood out because of how marvelous he or she was? Isn’t it the best feeling in the world to remember those little snippets of people, and then feel all at once their greater purpose in your life? Don’t you love how people, and their actions and words, can change the course of your life, and isn’t it interesting how beautiful people are when you love them?
I do believe that it is the little things in life that indeed make life spectacular. The feel of your child’s soft cheek when you sneak in their room before you go to bed to give them (another) kiss. The sound of the door opening when your partner comes home. That feeling when you bought the perfect gift for someone; when they first unwrapped it and looked down in awe and happiness. A fantastic bottle of red, 2 glasses in. Your child’s first cry that moment after birth. The eager anticipation to see loved ones, and the resulting contentment that fills you up once you’ve hugged them. The moments that make you pause, take stock, and thank something – somewhere – that you are where you are with the people in your life.
I’ve learned this week, in a poignant and visceral way, to take nothing for granted. Appreciate the little things. Feel people’s importance in your life. Make your love for the one’s you love light up your face. Appreciate that kids are noisy, and that’s wonderful because it means that they are here. Your partner’s mess at the side of the room means he or she is here too. Take care of one another, have faith, and trust that it all works itself out in the end. Let the one’s you love know how much they light you up, from the inside. Be thankful that in all of the world, the people you love are hand selected, and sometimes created by you, just for you…
“Yes, you’re lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight”
