The Little Things

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
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.
