The Little Things

A while back I had a poem published by a publication called 'Story Mates' and I've decided to post it. It's a poem I've turned into a song and I often sing it while I'm driving or at home. I hope who ever reads "The Little Things" enjoys it too. It really is the little things in life that are the most memorable.

Without the thoughtful actions and words of others life is not as sweet as it could be. Family life flows better when we are thoughtful with our words and actions. A trip to the grocery store is made better with a pleasant cashier or helpful store clerk. When I go a place where I get served I try to make it as pleasant as possible for the person who is serving. After all they deserve the little things too.

The Little Things
- Diane Smit

Often it's the little things
the smallest act or deed,
that mean the most to others
and fill the greatest need.

A helping hand, a smiling face
the heartfelt words we say,
an earnest prayer on one's behalf
are things to do each day.

It matters not if small or poor
to do a thoughtful thing.
For the language we call kindness
makes everybody sing.
