Popcorn Bag - Simple Saturday

We were in a store yesterday. One we frequent often (most of the workers know and love my Little Mister)! On this particular day, he had found a treasure. One that astonished everyone we saw. Why, you may ask. Simply because it wasn't a toy. No car, truck, coveted house or even clothes or boots.
He found a small bag for popcorn. You would think it was made of gold. He was so proud of his treasure. He showed it to every lucky person who happened to pass our buggy. 
Once we got home with his $0.15 prize, he piled up in a recliner and happily watched Mickey Mouse and munched popcorn. Obviously it tasted much better when served in a small paper bag!

Something small and insufficient to others may be the very thing to make us smile!
Lord, help me learn to be happy with the small things in life!
