The little things

Ballons with faces on against a cloudy sky

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.
