Updated on Wednesday:
I just spent $42.97 at a dollar store. How could I spend
so much at a place where things cost just a dollar? I just wanted some
napkins, socks and soup. While there, I decided to look around and see
if there was something else I “needed.” The shopping cart was soon
loaded with things like a book, gift bags, nail polish, shampoo, and a
toy for the grandchildren’s room.
Now I know how it added up! It was one dollar at a time.
Little things do add up.
If you are hoping to lose weight, a cookie today, ice
cream tonight, a candy bar for lunch. Hmm, soon it is a pair of twill
pants that won’t zip. Or it could be a day too busy for exercise, no
time for a daily devotional. Then, there is an evening when I will watch
one TV show and sit in front of the screen for several hours. I begin to
feel worn out and sluggish.
It works in a positive way too. Smiles can be passed out
freely and will brighten someone’s day. Send a card to someone who is
hurting, or just pat them on the shoulder.
When you smile, the world doesn’t seem so cruel and
Count the little things, they do mean a lot.
