My nephews new little puppy

LITTLE

Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles

Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years

Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success~
It's the little things in life
That brings the greatest happiness

It is often those little things in life that can mean the most to us.  Don't we all notice the little things about people that make them most endearing to us.  The way they smile, the dimples in their cheeks.  If we didn't have little things in life like dash of salt or a spoon full of sugar, things sure would taste pretty bland.  Little fingers that hold our hands and little feet following our footsteps make us feel more complete.

Many think that big is about strength and importance, and little means weakness and insignificance.  Not so.  It's the little things that matter.  A little smile, a little hug can make a difference to all of us.

Little things console us because little things afflict us.

What a cutie. I agree with you. I get a lot of pleasure from small pleasures and that's the majority of our lives. Thanks for your sweet note!
