the little things
(this is a view from my grandpa's back yard I took in the fall)
A kind word or smile
to share a cup of tea
a chat with someone you love
to hear a giggle or belly laugh
through the phone
to share life's celebrations
marriages, births, milestone achievements
to the little victories
to learn to forgive
or cheer leading for losing a pound
to console in the hard times
sickness, depression, death.
all of the things that happen in our lives
deepens our connection to each other
as human beings
it deepens our love for one another
as our strength rises to the surface
when we didn't even know it was there.
The comfort of knowing that we are never ever alone,
tears down the old walls. . .
watch them crumble.
