Some days, there is just nothing else I want more than to indulge in a few snack-sized chocolates.
except on those days that I also end up going to a birthday party and having salty chips and a piece of cake. Then later, everyone in the house votes to get take-out for dinner. So, I skip my salad and also end up having soda instead of water to wash it down. It's a series of little things that add up and show up... on the scale, on my complexion and in the form of moodiness.
It's a picture to me how it is in life...little things that add up to bigger consequences.
I heard of a lady once who drank one less sugar-filled soda a day for a year and lost 13 pounds! I think of sea waves and how little by little they are able to erode big huge strong rocks on a mountain. I think about my little prayers I pray as I wash dishes and the bigger consequences they must have that I am completely unaware of. I think about my parenting and the little things I do or don't do that will affect my children down the road. I think of my marriage, my finances, my health, my relationships and everything in between.
