Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

For whatever reason, I always notice those little things and they make me so happy for a moment or two.  Actually, I think the best way to say it is that my heart genuinely feels warmed.  And I’m reminded how much I just really like people.  And how cool it is that two complete and utter strangers can make an encouraging connection in this big world, however fleeting.  And how a moment so brief can have the power to make your day just a little brighter…just like that!
