Although my mother was not the author of this verse, she felt the power of its message and had taken the time to write it out for me. I was thrilled to find this little verse, written in Mum's lovely handwriting. I will take better care of it in the future - this special reminder of my dear Mother who passed away almost 23 years ago.
The Little Things
It really is the little things
That mean the most of all...
The "Let me help you with that" things
That may seem very small;
The "I'll be glad to do it" things
That make your cares much lighter;
The "Laugh with me, it's funny" things
That make your outlook brighter...
The "Never mind the trouble" things,
The "Yes", I understand;
The interest and encouragement
In everything you've planned.
It really is the little things,
The friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life
And make it more worthwhile.
