One of things in life I have learned is that..... to quote

"Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things,
in which smiles and kindnesses, and small obligations, given habitually,
are what win and preserve the heart and secure comfort." -- Humphrey Davy

The great sacrifices and duties of life that each of us do are not always a source of peace and comfort. Sometimes, and I say sometimes, they heap unhappiness and sadness within us which does not always translate to a life we would rather have or have imagined in our dreams. These are the secrets in the heart which some of us or maybe even a lot us keep. But we deal with it in each our own way. Most of them find their way in prayer.

That is why I like people and admire human beings. Oh I know there are jerks scattered in there but everybody is a someone for a reason. Both the good and bad are because of a reason or reasons good or bad. You are who you are because something made you that way. Even God does not condemn a sinner but only the sin. Oh yes, bad can change but that would take for another post. As for the good, keep on being good because that is a big winner however one may look at it.

The little things... ahhh but this one is different. You know what, my preferences have changed as I grew older. I would rather have the tiny sincere gesture of kindness, a thoughtful concern, a comforting touch, a considerate word or words, an understanding look, a smile that says I'm okay and everything will be fine, an unexpected Hello, gifts of time and presence, and all the tiny kind nice heart-based gestures or things which truly create the precious treasures of life and living. These I like to see in my day with family, friends, people. These I live for because without them life is nothing but a wound-up clock ticking time away.

:-) I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
Release the power of love and positivity around you
and to the universe. The universe will surely remember
to give back to you a thousandfold more.

Oh by the way, God is watching and blesses you all.
Have a great weekend!

(By the way, thanks to Mr. Quote Man for the lovely quote above.)
