Well the response from my readers (and friends) to that comment was overwhelming. It seems that you all feel that actually it is the Little Things that are the most important. It's the Little Things that keep us going when the BIG THINGS get tough. It's the Little Things that give us pleasure, joy, that warm fuzzy feeling that makes us think 'You know what? I've had a crap day but that smile/sight/gift/chat with my friend has really lifted my spirits'
It's the Little Things that remind us we are not completely on our own, that other people care and that the BIG THINGS are not EVERYTHING...
I thought it would be nice to celebrate those Little Things and with this in mind am thinking of doing one post a week focusing completely on the Little Things that have made a difference that week. You can join in if you want. I would love it if you did. The more the merrier - lot's of Little Things together making up one BIG bundle of appreciation!
This week a very little thing made me happy - a bunch of flowers, rescued from the reduced bucket in my local Co-op - a sad, neglected, lonely bunch of sweet williams. I have no doubt they would have been binned at close of business that day if no-one took them home. They were priced up at 30p. Well it would have been rude not to...
A little TLC and an afternoon in a jug full of fresh water and I was rewarded with this lovely display!
Is it just me or does that single bloom look like a little heart?
Four days on and they are still looking lovely, a jug full of happiness.
See? Just a little thing but they lifted my spirits and I am looking at them now, against a backdrop of grey skies and raindrops, and I am smiling.
It really is the Little Things . . .
What Little Things have made you smile this week?
