Life Lessons From Special Agent Oso

Some of you with young kids may have had the pleasure (I use the term loosely) of watching Special Agent Oso on Disney Junior.

The other day the boys were watching an episode of Special Agent Oso where he helped some best friends who were moving away from each other.

In cleaning the kitchen, I overheard part of the show. It went something like this:

Kid: We need something special.

Special Agent Oso: Well, if it's special, then it has to be something big.

Kid: Not necessarily, Oso. Special things can be small too.

So this got me to thinking.

When we think about our lives, is it the big things that we remember or is it the little things?

How about the moment your significant other first kissed you?

Or the moment you found out you got the job you wanted?

Or when you stepped on the scale to discover you had lost those last 5 pounds?

Or the instant you found out that you had passed your Master's thesis exam?

Or the moment you were told that your loved one didn't have cancer?

Or when you discovered that you were pregnant?

Or when you held your child for the first time?

Or the instant you received your admission letter into the college of your choice?

Or the moment your child smiled at you for the first time?

Or when you had a horrible car crash only to be able to walk away uninjured?

Or that laugh shared reconnecting with a dear friend over dinner and drinks?

Or when your significant other asked you to marry them and be with them forever?

See, I think we can learn a lot from this Special Agent Oso episode.

Life is made up of a hundred, thousand different moments.

And these moments define us.

That is what life is all about.

It is the little moments that make up our life and make it all worth while.

So Special Agent Oso, I salute you.

Thanks for making me take a moment to really appreciate my life and all of my blessings.
