It’s the little things that matter or so they say
I hear that a little pigeon crap helped bring down a bridge in Minnesota.
Pretty little, wouldn’t you say?
Erosion eats away at mountains
The Grand Canyon was formed by a little river
Microbes so little you can’t see them
Can put a gigantic elephant on its knees.
All done by a “little thing”
A little thing that counts.
A little idea can grow into a fortune
or it can cause the loss of one.
That little baby born yesterday
becomes the center of the family’s life.
and a little puppy will brighten anyone’s day.
Little things can twist us up,
stretch us out
or turn us around.
A little nap can restore our energy.
As can a little bite.
A little word or a comment can wound the soul
with pain you think will never go away
but best of all a little hug or smile can heal it
and restore your balance.
It is those “little” things that count and make a difference.
So look for the “little things” – they have big value.
