A shiny penny. A child’s smile. Laughter. A cup of tea. A glass of wine. A hand to hold. A listening ear. A shoulder to lean on. Since I’ve written All the Little Things, I’ve paid more attention to the simple things in life and taste their sweetness on my tongue every day. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is but a dream. Today is all we have to hold in our hands and we will find that it is simple gestures and special moments that mean much more than things. They say, “You can’t take it with you,” but I am sure that love will be with us on the journey to the other side. Love and all the memories that we hold dear will light the candle of our soul, always burning bright.
