Little thing, big happy – the series!


It’s the little things in life.

Every day, I plan to post about a little thing that I love and that I’m grateful for.  You’ve probably come across reports recently touting gratitude as an emotion that has measurable, positive impact on health and well-being (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/22/science/a-serving-of-gratitude-brings-healthy-dividends.html)

So in that light, I’d like to share little happy-making events.

Like yesterday’s unexpected thunderstorm.  Rain was predicted, but we got a light show for free!  Gorgeous, gorgeous rain.  Since we’ve been in horrible drought for much of the season, every little helps.  And thunderstorms are a real treat around here because they’re so rare (darned Mediterranean climate!)
