Keeping It Simple

Lunch out? Or homemade mac and cheese?

A night on the town? Or a little TV with a blanket on the couch?

This year's bestseller? Or the front page of today's paper?

The great American novel? Or a writing installment every day?

Champagne toasts? Or seltzer laughs?

A sweeping saga? Or a small story worth telling?

Sometimes, my children remind me, and sometimes, I remind myself--it's not just the big things that define our world. Often, it is the little moments, the simple joys, that make our lives the way we want them to be. What are we doing today? I don't know. But let's keep it simple.
