Heart to Heart 470 Your Significance

Your Significance


You may think that you are

completely insignificant in this world.

But someone drinks coffee every morning

from their favorite cup that you gave them.

Someone heard a song on the radio

that reminded them of you.

Someone read the book you recommended,

and plunged headfirst into it.

Someone remembered your joke

and smiled, returning home from work

in the evening.

Someone loves themselves a little more,

because you gave them a compliment.

Never think that you have no influence

whatsoever.  Your trace, which you leave

behind with even a few good deeds,

can not be erased.

Thank you Stephen Simon for sharing this with us.

Yes, yes. yes!  It reminds me of that old song “Little Things Mean a Lot”

Little Things Mean a Lot
Blow me a kiss from across the room
Say I look nice when I’m not
Touch my hair as you pass my chair
Little things mean a lot
Give me your arm as we cross the street
Call me at six on the dot
A line a day when you’re far away
Little things mean a lot
Don’t have to buy me diamonds and pearls
Champagne, sables or such
I never cared much for diamonds and pearls
‘Cause honestly honey, they just cost money
Give me your hand when I’ve lost the way
Give me your shoulder to cry on
Whether the day is bright or gray
Give me your heart to rely on
Send me the warmth of a secret smile
To show me you haven’t forgot
For always and ever, now and forever
Little things mean a lot
Life is so simple and pure at its core.  We often make it so complicated.  Let us dedicate ourselves to do the smallest, kindest things for each other. It will perhaps change the world, like no other thing has.  From my significant heart to yours, Thomas
