Noticing is a good habit, I think. It can be a remedy for self-obsession... unless, of course, you only notice things about yourself. :) Anyway, here are some things I've been noticing.
The light pink rhododendrons are blooming.
My boys, 27 months apart, are sharing clothes. (Can't decide how I feel about this.)
Reheated rice is not that great.
Board books hurt when they are chucked point-blank at the back of your head.
The grass is growing again.
My children are some of the most forgiving individuals I have ever met. Thank God.
The laundry needs to be folded.
The scent of newly-opened cherry blossoms can drift a long way.
Nothing important seems to happen when (or how) you think it will.
God knows what he's doing.
