It’s the little things.
Sometimes it’s the most simple, littliest things that can make me happy.
Last week we walked out our front door, just like we had a million times before — only this time we noticed that we had house guests. The best, sweetest, most delightful house guests possible — and they can stay as long as they’d like. In fact, I’ll be sad when it’s time for them to go.
Almost too little to notice, there was a hummingbird nest on the tree below the steps. A small collection of twigs held an even smaller hummingbird. With us only about three feet away, this sweet bird didn’t move for a good thirty seconds. And that’s when we saw the most precious, most beautiful site — her two, lima-bean-sized baby birds. With beaks the size of a grain of rice, these teeny-tiny birds very slowly moved up and down with strong beating hearts.
Like I said, it’s the little things. (No pun intended.)
Oh, and by the way, with only four ingredients, this quick and easy corn recipe is unbelievably delicious. As summer approaches, it’s simple, fresh, flavor-packed side dishes like this, that I love with my grilled meat at a BBQ. This sweet and spicy corn is especially divine when served along side Grilled Rib-Eye Steak Marinated in Asian Spices!
P.S. Memorial Day BBQ next weekend, anyone?
