It’s the Little Things


Have you ever wished for some little thing that would enhance life in some small way? I mean a really little thing of no consequence, really. It happened to me twice recently.

I had bought a small Christmas cactus in December, its four inch pot wrapped in holiday foil. When the season was over I removed the foil to discover an ordinary dark plastic container with a barcode on it, and I had nothing on hand to place this eyesore in. That’s when I wished for a new pot to put the plant in.

The other wish was even smaller. A couple of my pens were running out of ink and my thought was the need for more pens. However in both cases, with Covid-19 lockdowns in effect I was not about to go out shopping for such frivolous items that I could live without.

On Valentine’s day a bouquet of Edible chocolate covered strawberries arrived at my door in a four inch lime green pot!

Yesterday my mailbox contained advertising material from a Real Estate company. The package included a notepad and pen!

Sometimes it’s the little things that make our days a little bigger. Happy Saturday.
