The Little Things

I didn’t know that folding clothes could ever feel so grand but when I’m here beside my friend I know it truly can. For as she calmly sits, I smile as I fold her clothes and stand here in her sunny, small bedroom I love giving her a hand we laugh and share so many things and as we share our friendship blooms. For she is ill of health and truly needs a willing, healthy friend like me to help her with the little things life has been hard, but she trusts in God when we’re together, our inner joy springs. Whether it’s cleaning dishes or doing laundry it gives me happiness to help, you see such simple acts are a labor of love that give pleasure to our Lord above. To view the world with caring eyes unlocks the heart, makes the spirit rise I’ve found contentment’s secret here today it’s to help with all the little things and to give my life away. 11/24/2020
