It’s amazing how something as little as briefly losing our keys or stubbing a toe can ruin a day. At the same time, a timely compliment or finding a $5 bill in a pocket can make our day.
The view from my back step is where I watch storms roll in over the lake or the tips of waves glisten like diamonds in the sunshine. Only inches from my crazy, busy world, this step insulates me.
It’s the little things that easily find our tender spots; the places where we haven’t built up a barrier.
