Fine Points, Small Details, “Grace Notes”

The smallest of details can make a big difference in anything, designs, cooking and most especially in life.  We all make an effort to pay attention to the small details, those little moments, but sometimes they get lost in the shuffle of living.  Some call those moments “Grace Notes”.

Yesterday I laid in the grass.  It had just been mowed the day before.  There were tiny little yellow flowers, ants, beetles and clover.  It smelled wonderful, of dirt and fresh green cut grass.  For a moment I was a child again; my father had just cut the grass, I was helping him rake it up!  That was Yesterday’s Grace Note.


What will happen today?  Will I notice a special moment or will it be lost?  I hope that I will take time to notice.

Take some time today and find a Grace Note to highlight your day.

Happy Living
