It’s the little things we do and sayThat mean so much as we go our way,A kindly deed can lift a loadFrom weary shoulders on the road,Or a gentle word, like summer rain,May soothe some heart and banish pain,What joy or sadness often springsFrom just the simple little things.~ Willa Hoey ~
I have posted this poem previously, but I had to bring it back today. It is a poem that runs through my head, quite often. It really is the little things we do or say that mean so much as we go our way! Today I am so grateful for several "little" things that really became "big things" in my heart.
- Thank you for my stepmom who wrote me an email today and gave me a compliment out of left field, and had some lovely wishes for me that I wish too! It was nice to have someone sharing their feelings about me to me, and they were very uplifting. I kind-of floated along in my day after that.
- Thank you for my husband for many reasons today that I wish to not say here and now. Just because.
- Thank you for a friend who emailed me today when she was feeling low, asking me to listen and perhaps respond (which I did excessively, I think)... it was good to feel needed like that and I'm glad I could be a friend that she would think of to come to when need be.
