It is the little things that make the difference. That make the world seem less bleak.
A song that makes me want to dance.
An ‘are you okay’ that speaks of care not politeness.
The offer of beers and a chat on a bench.
A comment that says I am enough as I am.
Silly sticker fights on messenger.
A friendly smile.
A comment that shows I am understood.
A warm pair of eyes.
The opportunity to sit in silence.
A message that lets me know I am not alone.
An all enveloping hug.
The phone number for if I ever need anything.
Postcards through the door.
It is the little things that make the difference. That give me a reason to smile.
Make that little effort. Reach out. It may not seem much to you. It could mean everything.
