THANK GOD FOR LITTLE THINGS

by:
Helen Steiner Rice

Thank you, God, for little things

that often come our way,

The things we take for granted

but don't mention when we pray,

The unexpected courtesy,

the thoughtful, kindly deed,

A hand reached out to touch us

in the time of sudden need-

Oh make us more aware, dear God,

of little daily graces

That come to us with "sweet surprise"

from never dreamed of places.
