Little Things

It's just the little things we do

that makes us wealthy, I have found --

A smile, a hug, or just a handshake.

these things make the world go 'round.


A phone call or just a cheerful note

to brighten soneone's day...

and spending time with children

as they learn, and as they play.


It's not the fortune, or the fame;

It's not the way we dress.

It's not the people we meet --

all of this does not impress.


It's just the kindness that we show.

Forgiveness, mixed with care and love.

It's just the little things we do,

as God observes us from above.

And God sees each "little" thing we do! "Little is much if God is in it."
