The Little Things ... A Mother\'s Day Poem
It is the little things that count
And give a mother pleasure -
The things her children bring to her
Which they so richly treasure...
The picture that is smudged a bit
With tiny fingerprints,
The colored rock, the lightening bugs,
The sticky peppermints;
The ragged, bright bouquet of flowers
A child brings, roots and all -
These things delight a mother\'s heart
Although they seem quite small.
A mother can see beauty
In the very smallest thing
For there\'s a bit of heaven
In a small child\'s offering.
-Katherine Nelson Davis
Recipes for the Soul ... \"Make a Difference\"
\"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of the arts.\" -Henry David Thoreau
Each morning brings with it a fresh chance for us to change the world, change someone\'s life or simply change the course of the day for the better. Living the best life, day by day, is an art all it\'s own. Making a conscious effort to raise the bar on life and make the most of every moment affects you and all the lives you touch.
Simple Steps ...
Add value. Use each day as an opportunity to contribute. Whether you paint a masterpiece or pick up trash at the park, your efforts bring quality to the day.
Make an impact. Each day, your presence affects as many lives as you want to touch. Live an artful lifedaily by offering a sincere compliment, extending a helping hand or sharing a bold idea.
