Addendum to “Little Things DO Count”


I forgot to mention that sometimes, a smile or frown can make or break someone’s day.  Maybe the person you smile at on the elevator will see no other smiles that day except yours.   And – I remember that when I had cancer and people would frown at me for not wearing a wig — what was already a tough situation was made even worse by the thoughtlessness.

I’m trying to live by the credo, “What thing can I do right now that will help someone later?”

Thanks to Stevehi for sending some smiles to me on a comment this morning; it made me remember this information.  🙂

Thank you all for making my day!  You always do!  🙂

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!

  1. This is so concise and meaningful : )

  2. You have got to be kidding!!! Frowned at you for not wearing a wig? When I see women with a completely bare head, or just wearing a bandana around their head, I do three things. 1. smile at them, 2. pray for them, 3. Think how brave they are for not being ashamed that they have cancer. God bless you Debb.
