The Little Things in Life

My Lost and Found Pearl

The Little Things in Life

All too often, we get caught up in the big moments in life. Moments that define us and bring us joy or sadness. They are part of the circle that moves us on the journey of life. But I feel the true pleasure of the small things and experiences that are integral to who I am.

This morning, I took the dogs for a walk, and I was so grateful for the beautiful rain that showered the countryside during the night. The sound of rain is so soothing; it brings life and washes us clean.

The landscape on the Mexican Baja is mesmerizing. It’s breathtaking and heartbreaking all in one go. There are hills and mountain ranges that vanish at dusk and dawn and become silhouettes, portraits awash in shades of grey and mauve.


  1. Oh, tell me about it. I love the rain. As a youth, we lived where the temperatures averaged 35c. We had to pray for our rain to give life to the parched soil and withered crops. Now I live in a beautiful green land where there’s plenty of rain and temperatures are cool. I’m so grateful. Delightful piece Monika, thanks for sharing, it touched a chord in my heart.

    The little things are often the biggest. Only time, experience, and heartache can teach you that.
    Good to know that you can find lost things. A wonderful writer and sleuth.
    Felt so light and nice reading this. 🙂
