Take time to read the captions
I've had the poster above since college. It hung in my dorm room, then my apartment, then the townhouse I rented. When I bought my house, I framed it and it's hanging on the right just as you walk in the door. You'd think this was a prominent place, and maybe it is, maybe I'm just used to it being there, but for whatever reason, I never notice it. So tonight as I was dusting the pictures in the hallway (I know, right? What's gotten into me?!?!), I noticed it.
And I didn't just notice it, I looked at it.
Because while the cute little girl in the rain is a sweet picture to see, it's the small caption below that led me to buy the poster in the first place:
And I read that and smiled. Thinking of all the years I've had this poster, those encouraging words were never very far from me... But I didn't notice them. And now that I remembered to look again, I'm reminded of the truth of that statement. And once again, I'm very grateful for all I have and where life has taken me.
