Dear Deb,

I can't pretend to know what you are facing,
in regard to your Mother's health, but thank you
for sharing about her. Is there a close friend of
your Mom's that maybe you could be in touch with?
It might help you both as you journey this path
caring and loving a mom and a friend.

I believe I am going to keep your question
in my heart and think about it... maybe even
blog about 'the little things'.

Wishing you and your hubby safe travels.

Little things affect me in big ways. Back when I was still single, I would constantly tell people that it's the little things that win me over. Now that I've been with the man of my life for more than a year now, the little things seem to be slipping away. I'm glad I read this post. It sort of reminds me that it's the little things that matter.

Deb - thanks for your caring. My sister lives a mile from my parents, so we talk frequently and share our emotions about our mother. It's a new and strange land we journey in as our parents age and the roles reverse.

Jen, your comment reminds me that little things often get short shrift, or get forgotten. On their own, little things can pack a wallop; taken in succession, they lead to big things.

Thanks for coming by and commenting at CheerfulMonk. I like your site and have added it as a technorati favorite.

I'm not a football fan but actually watched the Ohio State-Michigan game because my daughter was at the game. She and her significant other live in the Chicago area but go to all the Michigan home games.

Jean, thanks for the thumbs up for Spirit in Gear. Now if I could only get you to root for the right football team !
