It seems like I remember being told that if I took care of the little things, the big things would fall into place. So far, it seems to be working out.
It's a little thing to tell your husband you love him and that he is a good husband and father as well as a fine human being every day. It may not be the only thing, but this little thing has been working for me for 22 years.
It's a little thing to make sure that your children don't run wild, even when they hate you for it. Again, it's sure not the only thing, but so far, the baby is 17 and nobody is pregnant, diseased, addicted or dead. Big daughter is about to graduate from college. Little one is working to get scholarships for college.
It's a little thing to get some exercise every week. I'm 49, and strong as a mule.
It's a little thng to say no to purchases I don't need. . . and I'm debt-free.
It's a little thing to send $5 extra with your mortgage payment each month. . . and we will own our home free and clear by Christmas.
It's a little thing to make sure the people you love know it. . . but it has BIG results.
I'm a great believer in the little things and they really have taken care of me.
