The Little Things

Rainy-day-in-lexington-Paul_Sawyier

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our pleasant earth below
Like the heaven above.

Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney
(6 April 1823 – 1 November 1908)

There are a few versions of Julia’s poem “The Little Things”, but this is undoubtedly the version I love most.

Our little progress daily seems minute, but added up together day after day, it is immense.  Our little acts of kindness and words of love may seem small individually, but if 6 billion of us do kind deeds together, it is a great ocean and a very large difference.

The little acts do add up to create a heaven on Earth!

    1. Call me an optimist, Aradhana, but I do see a reasonable chance it will happen one day, at least for most of us. We just need to begin, be part of the momentum and spread the message! 🙂
