It is not the big things that matter.

It is not the big deals we make.
The money we make.
The status we try to achieve.
The success it appears we have made.
The house we reside in.
The car we drive.

None of that.

It is the little things we do.

At the time they mean little. They cost nothing. They are not worth money. The effort is minimal.
The planning and preparation are small. They do not involve lots of people. They are simple.

They are the things that really matter.

They make us successful, fulfilled and happy.

In the end the little things are what really matters.
In a lifetime what is most important is all those who were on the receiving end of all those little things. And that we recognized those times and and did the little things.

Spend "some time" doing the little things.

You will be glad you did. Because they really do matter.

You never know, but the smile and kind word you gave to a stranger may have prevented a suicide. Heck, maybe a murder.

I agree wholeheartedly, it is amazing how much that means to the people not only on the receiving end, but also how great it makes those who give feel. Thanks for the reminder!

Thank you ORC. And, we might not always be able to predict lifes storms, we can learn to dance in the rain. Read that on a sign in a small eatery in Carrollton, Ky.

Me and my old lady adopted a feral kitten a few months back. She has experience teaching feral cats how to "cat" He's doing great.

Last Saturday I noticed he liked to carry paper balls I made for him in his mouth. I decided to attempt to teach him to fetch.

It's going great, costs nothing, and will impact no one. But damn if it's not one of the most fun things I have done in a long time. I had forgotten that simple things are some of the best.

A paper ball and a kitten.

While not a little thing to be taken for granted, I add health to the list.

I am not BIPOLAR. I don't even like bears.
