Little Things

December 5th, 2018 at 08:19 am

It's funny how the little things tend to mean a lot.

Yesterday, my coffee maker died. I make coffee every morning. I wasn't happy. DH said he would buy me a new one for Christmas and my immediate thought was what I would do between now and then? I guess I'm addicted to my cup of coffee in the morning.

I then remembered that there was a box in the garage with an old coffee maker. My mom who has been gone 12 years, bought this one and used it a few times and then decided she didn't like it. So, she gave it to me and I have had it in the box in the garage ever since thinking I would use it if mine died. So, I got it out, cleaned it up, and made some coffee. Fortunately it works. I'm not one of those with the fancy coffee makers.

It's funny how something as simple as a cup of coffee means so much to me.

Yesterday I took some cranberry walnut bread over to a shut in. She had mentioned last summer it was her favorite bread. I had made some loves for our Christmas bazaar and had mentioned to one of her sons our bazaar had it, but he couldn't be bothered. She had wanted to support our bazaar and I thought he could then give her the bread, but guess not. So, night before last I made her two small loaves and took that over with some fudge. We had a nice visit.

Such little things, but they do mean something.

    Little things do mean a lot. Yesterday I reorganized some drawers in my dresser and it made me happy all day.

    So nice of you to make the cranberry bread for your friend.

    A small kindness, like a thoughtful friend who brings cranberry walnut bread and fudge, can mean a great deal, especially to someone who is shut in. Smile

    It's so true! The little things do mean so much. We don't need to give the biggest gifts...the small ones, even just time spent together is so precious.

    I always say...it doesn't take much to make me happy! I think the "little" things are actually the biggest, and most thoughtful. I'm sure your visit with your friend meant so much to her!

    Yes, small, simple things can make life better.
