The Little Things

By: Katherine Nelson Davis

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 lightning 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 little bit of heaven In a small child’s offering.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful, caring, generous, loving, and compassionate mothers out there!
