It’s  the little things that matter

As you travel down the road,

There’s joy and great contentment

In sharing someone’s load.

To you its such a little thing

And hardly worth the time,

But truly it can mean a lot

With a long hard hill to climb.


Our lives are filled with ups and down,

More downs than ups, it seems;

But often times a helping hand

Brings closer still our dreams.

If there be that which we may do

To lighten someone’s way,

Let’s do it, then, and thank the Lord

He made this lovely privileged day.
