My way of thinking/ The Little Things

It is all about the little things we do in life.  I like to try to do BIG things, but when it comes down to it, it's about that smile to a stranger.  It's about letting the cashier know they are valued.  It all comes to sharing love.  Give from the heart and you'll always get from some one's heart.  It doesn't always have to come from the person you gave to.  It may very well come from the most unexpected source.  How about the love of a dog or a cat?  That is a giant reward to me.  For those who have children, that love has to be grand beyond belief!  Then there's the love you can feel from a gentle breeze.  The sunrise.  Goodness is always there if that is what we are looking to see.

I am blessed to have many friends in my life.  Sometimes they come to me with things they perceive to be problems.  Often they are totally justified.  I can offer them love and support.  I can be understanding and comforting.  And, if there problem is only in the way they are looking at something, I can share my point of view.  That is a little thing.  Every blessed day is full of opportunities to share some little things, moments, smiles, a touch to let someone know that you are present.  Doesn't always have to be a grand gesture.  Think small.  It will become big.

This is a short little story because it's about little things.  Just remember to see and appreciate what is right before your eyes.  All you need is love!  (Stealing from The Beatles!)
