Little Things Mean So Much…

17 Apr

In today’s world, compliments are rare. It seems all too easy for folk to pass over the doings of others, and forget to say those little things that amount to praise, or take those actions that give others a boost.

So I count myself extremely fortunate today to have met a friend that has just paid me the type of compliment I most desire. He tells me he has borrowed one of my titles : ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ :from the local library, and is about to start reading it….

This knowledge made me smile: and the glow of pleasure it produced lasted for hours. My mood lifted, just as sunrise lifts curtain of darkness. The day went from hum-drum to fantastic: and all because he’d chosen to sample one of my titles, and bothered to impart his decision to me.

It got me thinking: how  little acts of kindness or interest in others can achieve what no pill can; and often, what society’s  great god, money, cannot.

    Little acts of kindness are the oil on which the wheels of the world go round,. If there were more the ride would be smoother.
    Congrats on having a book chosen and the person letting you know. xx Hugs xx
