It's The Little Things That Really Matter
Sunday was the third anniversary of my mother's death. The time has went by so quickly. I think so much of my mother and have found that it was the little things that she said or done that I think of the most. Some of her favorite things were.
1. This too shall pass.
2. Red at night sailor's delight, red in the morning sailor's warning.
3. Listen, heae the train whistle in the distance? That means it's going to rain.
4. If someone is mean to you, you just turn around and do good to them. It's like heaping coals of fire on them.
I especially think of the times when I would tell her someone was being mean to me or I was going through what seemed like a severe situation, she would tell be that I was not the only one that the same thing had happened to. Others had went through the same hard place, and they survived...I could to. Isn't it strange that when we are going through a rough place in our life, we think we just can't take this problem any longer, but when it's past we realize it really wasn't as bad as we thought. God is good!
