Life skills: What matters

It really is the little things

That mean the most of all...

The ‘let me help you with that’ things

That may seem very small

The ‘I’ll be glad to do it’ things

That make your cares much lighter,

The ‘laugh with me, it’s funny’ things

That make your outlook brighter...

The ‘never mind the trouble’ things,

The ‘yes, I understand’

The interest and encouragement

In everything you’ve planned

It really is the little things,

The friendly word or smile,

That add such happiness to life

And make it more worth while.
