What I needed to hear

Today’s Birthday Month gift comes from Paws for thought.

Author Unknown

If each grain of sand were to say:
One grain does not make a mountain,
There would be no land.

If each drop of water were to say:
One drop does not make an ocean,
There would be no sea.

If each note of music were to say:
Each note does not make a symphony,
There would be no melody.

If each word were to say:
One word does not make a library,
There would be no book.

If each brick were to say:
One brick does not make a wall,
There would be no house.

If each seed were to say:
One seed does not make a field,
There would be no harvest.

If each of us were to say:
One person does not make the difference,
There would never be love and peace on earth.

You and I do make the difference,
Begin today and make the difference.

    ViVi would like to add to Paws for thought

    If each pooch were to say;
    One paw does not make a dirty floor,
    Just consider what we can do with four.

    It is all in our perspective, isn’t it?

    So glad you are up and around again.

    It’s true. We all count a little bit. It’s best to live one’s life as well as one can.

    Love the idea of the four paws, Mina. In fact I’m almost led to say that he can dirty my floor anytime with his four paws……. almost!
