The Little Things (A List)

A friend on Facebook posted about a play she had seen called Every Little Thing. Where the main character makes a list of all the little things in life that make life worth living. Since this week was a long one, and I have learned gratitude helps make the world a little bit of a better place, I decided to make a list of my own.
