with so much happening all a the same time,
it's easy to forget the little things,
let alone the big things that just happen to not be the most important ones,
just the ones that,
when you step back and realize the scale and weight this thing holds on your entire life,
you realize maybe you should have not taken it for granted all these years.
maybe appreciated it just a little more,
said thank you for it,
even just smiled more often,
knowing it was there.
just because you have it,
doesn't mean it's always going to be there.
it's when it slips away that you begin to understand what it all meant.
and then it' too late.
