Celebrating the Little Things

Thank you to Ruth for this amazing community to share our celebrations!
April is poetry month. This month I will be crafting and sharing original poems. Often, these poems will be messy and early drafts. Many of us are sharing our poems on twitter using the hashtag, #digipoetry. We hope you join us!

Today I celebrate 
the little things
that bring me joy

the little things
that exist everywhere
if we take the time to 
stop and notice them

My week was 
filled with 
tiny miracles
flying around

Unexpected invitations
and surprises!

Friendships that
remind me how blessed I am

Words filled with
love and support
Books that carry me
to a dream world

Ducks with a sense of humor
Ducks on a car while I was walking Bella!

Toilet paper that makes me
feel special
Everyday our custodian folds the ends of the toilet paper rolls. It makes me SMILE!

Cookies & milk for dessert

All of these little things combined 
to make this a week filled 
with miracles flying around
Just grab one!


  1. Your week was full of fun surprises. Ducks on a car and that lovely sorry poem.

  2. Ducks are everywhere this year! I feel like they are invading?!?!? I saw a flock of them when I was running the other day. That has never happened. That sorry poem. My goodness that is awesome. Tiny miracles indeed!

  3. You have perfectly written how important the small things are - even the folded toilet paper and the ducks! I know some times I have so much to do that I don't take the time to look and be appreciative. thanks for the reminder!

  4. What small and yet important things you noticed this week. A janitor that takes the time to fold the toilet paper says quite a bit as does the whimsical ducks and the perfect I'm Sorry poem. Thanks Michelle.

  5. That 'sorry' poem is so sincere, Michelle. How can you not chuckle. Sometimes, as we know, it is hard! Love the pics,especially the TP. We do notice & appreciate the little things!

  6. Love that last poem and the ducks! This post made me smile numerous times!

  7. Ducks and chocolate cookies - sweet small things that bring out a smile. I like your combination of poetry and photos.

  8. Michelle, I love the idea that you incorporated your OLW, fly, in such a story type format.

  9. I love "unexpected invitations." That piece of writing made me smile for a million reasons.


  10. So many reasons for your wonderful smile!

  11. Your OLW: miracles flying around - YAY! I enjoyed seeing some of these moments on Instagram/Facebook throughout the week. Big and little blessings all add up to a wonderful life!
