Good Things Come in Small Packages

It's 5 Minute Friday and today's word is SMALL


They say good things come in small packages. 

As a child I had a hard time believing that because I liked big things!  Bring me a bicycle and a horse, forget that small stuff  I wanted something big, and I wanted to be BIG!

As I matured a little, I began to think maybe there was something to this small stuff. I liked perfume, which came in small bottles and books.

Even later I thought I had it all figured out. Of course I know what they mean now....a diamond ring!  How perfectly small and good that was.

Now that I am older, I realize that it's not always things you can buy.  I appreciate small things now, like a small squeeze of my hand by my sweetie, a small thank you note from my nephews and nieces or friends.  I appreciate a small act of calling just to say hi.

But I think my favorite small things are the little packages that are coming along now.  

Here is one of my favorites.


I'm joining Lisa Jo Baker and friends over at Five Minute Friday. . We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that she posts at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FiveMinuteFriday

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
