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.

Wishes Fulfilled

“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true.” This is a quote by Richard Bach, author of Jonathon Livingston Seagull, a great weekend read. May all your weekend wishes come true. Happy Saturday.

World Peace in a Sack?

I asked my ten-year-old grandson what he wanted for Christmas. His dimples deepened in thought, and his reply was, “Nana, I have no idea! I have everything now and don’t need anything more.” And then he looked me in the eye and said, “I’d really like world peace.”

I wanted to hug his little self and not let go, but we were in a hockey arena and ten-year-old hockey players have an image to keep up.

When a child of that age realizes how cruel our world is becoming, and wants world peace over toys and technology, how do we fulfill a Christmas wish like that?

Does Santa have world peace in his sack?
