There are tiny little pieces of Legos all over my house. It’s the aftermath of Christmas chaos, presents opened joyfully and played with for hours and now as the holidays settle down and the new year begins, they’re all just part of our daily life. No more fanfare, no more celebration, no more showing off the latest treasure to the newest guest.
It can be easy to lose track of the wonder as the days pass, but I have a feeling these Legos are going to keep me on my toes this year. Or at least wearing very comfortable slippers as I try to step around all of them. As I cleaned up horses and mini figures, tiny hedgehogs and sparkly snowflakes, I realized that it’s sometimes the smallest piece of the set that make the biggest impact.
Little pieces of clear plastic, nearly invisible, create beautiful windows.
Sparkly little dots that add final touches to roofs and tables.
Carrot noses for snowmen and tiny ice skates for tiny feet.
The large and impressive pieces don’t stand out once the building is finished like you might think they would. They’re the pieces that get used first, the ones that set the stage, the ones that overshadow the hundred little plastic bags full of nearly invisible parts. They’re incredibly necessary and perfectly equipped for their purpose, and sometimes I want nothing more than to be the established, obvious choice.
