Little Things

Nora Ephron, iconic director and screenwriter of every wonderful chick-flick you have ever seen (think When Harry Met Sally, Julia & Julia, Sleepless in Seattle, Silkwood) knew she was dying in 2010 from leukemia. In her memoir I Remember Nothing, she concluded the book with a list of things she would miss about life:

What I Will Miss

My kids
The concept of waffles
A walk in the park
The idea of a walk in the park
The park
Shakespeare in the Park
The bed
Reading in bed
The view out the window
Twinkle lights
Dinner at home just the two of us
Dinner with friends
Dinner with friends in cities where none of us lives
Next year in Istanbul
Pride and Prejudice
The Christmas tree
Thanksgiving dinner
One for the table
The dogwood
Taking a bath
Coming over the bridge to Manhattan

Concept of Waffles! I love that. Twinkle lights! I love that, too. There are just so many things to be fascinated by. Grace, grace everywhere.

She had made another list of things she would not miss such as washing her hair and bras. Girl after my own heart.

What would be on your lists?
