Little Thing in Pink

Today’s blog is about a small gift I received yesterday, a Little Thing in Pink, or a single iris stem. The iris has three soft pink flowers on one sturdy stem. I immediately placed it in a tall clear vase with water. Today, I noted the second bloom has begun to open.

It was only a small gift from a person’s home garden but it’s true little things mean a lot. This person loves to garden and volunteers at a local park’s garden. Gardening and volunteering are part of her life. This is one way she shares her love of gardening with others.

Little Things in Pink Mean a Lot

Why do little things mean a lot? For the answer to this question, I checked online. My research indicts that actions, words or small things we do each day really do mean something to others.

A spontaneous chat with a neighbor can help brighten a blue day feeling. This is because we are more tuned into the neighborhood and our neighbor. Making cookies with your children last only a hour or two but can mean enduring memories of that event. Even a walk in the park can be special.

Reading between the lines is what life is all about. If you have a partner share a smile, a pat on the hand, or have a good meal.

A lot of good things don’t cost money or at least very little money.

Ending Notes

Small doses of little things make a life better.

Be sure to add a smile, thank you, or give a small unexpected gift to a friend, neighbor, homeless shelter, or someone in need of cheering up.

Even a single stem or a Little Thing in Pink brightens up a day. A delicate pink iris is a gorgeous flower. I love my pink iris bloom sitting on my dining room table, thanks so much!

Happy Day all FMB Readers!
