The Importance of the Little Things

It’s time to share this week’s Words for the Week … short and sweet.

“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.” (Marian Wright Edelman)

It’s also the little things that add up, over time, to destroy projects and relationships. As the old ditty goes:

      It’s the little things that bother us

      And put us on the rack,

      You can sit upon a mountain,

      But you can’t sit on a tack.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. — Langston Hughes
