The Little Things

Fa~la~la~la~la Friday! Enjoy!

To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never; to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.
William Henry Channing 1810-1884

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 worth while.

Let's all remember not to pack away the joys and blessings of Christmas with the decorations we all need the spirit and love all year long

“There's more, much more, to Christmas than candlelight and cheer; It's the spirit of sweet Friendship that brightens all year. It's thoughtfulness and kindness, It's hope reborn again, For peace, for understanding, And for goodwill to men!”
~ Calvin Coolidge
