Grace in Small Things - 135

1.  The excitement felt around a bunch of little girls as they wait to march in a parade together.

2.  The pride on kids' faces when it's their turn to hold a banner in a parade.

3.  The increase in parade enjoyment when the temperature is in the 50s instead of the 30s or 40s.

4.  The feeling I always get when I hear a marching band.

5.  The anticipation felt in the last few seconds before the town Christmas tree is lit.
