Don't sweat the small stuff...

and don't pet the sweaty stuff - Jim Perry, on numerous occasions.

I live my life in "it's just a ________".

I believe that small things do mattter that eventually if you add up enough 1's you'll get to 100 or if you are just 1 short but you need 100, that could be a problem.

I'm not one of those people who will probably ever buy someone a present that costs $500, or take someone on a luxurious trip, no matter how much I love you. But when you are in need of a bowl of soup, or a cookie, or a ride to the airport, or I find that perfect $10 gift that I instantly thought of you because you told me you liked, say sock-monkeys (that which by the way must be some hot commodity because they don't have them at the Thrift Store, I checked), I'm your girl.

If it's your birthday, there will be a cake, or a game of pin the purse on Polly. You never know. If you're thirsty, I always have water. Or Mt. Dew.
I roll in the little things, I'm not a big thing kind of gal, unless it's my butt. I think it was Mother Theresa who said "I don't do big things, I do little things with big love". I think little things matter. A hug, a smile, a game of pin the purse on Polly, I think they matter.
And in all of it... To God be the glory.

Matt 10:42 "...And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward."

Great thoughts, your gift is surely
giving!! Don't ever change, you are God's hands in this crazy world. Your gifts are worth far more than $500, they are priceless!
