Little Things That Mean So Much

A joke or a song or a handshake,
a letter that comforts or cheers;
a meeting or parting, more precious
because of the smiles or the tears.
A five minutes’ sit after dinner,
a “Thank you” that lends the heart wings;
all these are but trifles, yet surely
they’re also life’s wonderful things!

I’d like to join with other bloggers in expressing my deepest sympathy to those affected by the recent tragedies, especially to the families of the school children killed in Connecticut.  It isn’t given to any of us to know how and when  our lives will end, but we know we have today. Lets practice these little kindnesses that mean so much.
