"It's little things that mean so much"
She loves coffee, writes absolutely beautiful poetry, and her favorite color is purple.
After I sent her the picture, she wrote this beautiful poem for me that made me cry.
It's little things that mean so much
A kind word, a gentle touch
Handmade treasures filled with love
Or surprise gifts, just because
When life seems hard and hope is lost
Hearts feel thoughtfulness, not size or cost
The smallest gesture of a dear friend
Sparks belief the darkness will end
Rainbows start shining through the rain
Life's Garden begins to bloom again
~By Cindy J. Smith
It made me happy to make something nice for her and it made her happy that I thought about her. And then, she made me cry happy tears when she wrote a poem, just for me.
Do something nice today for someone
There is so much misery, jealousy, cruelty and suffering in our world, brighten someone's day if only for a minute, and put a happy smile on their faces.
Cindy is a great poet, her life experiences provide her with inspiration.
Wife, mother and grandmother, she has a myriad of beautiful memories to draw from. Never having been good at playing the part of "starving artist", she has had many careers. Recently she retired from being an over-the-road truck driver with her husband, Dave, which provided different perspectives of the world in which we live. Cindy has published five poetry books (with two more coming out in December) and a children's book. More of her poems appear in various anthologies as well as several books by fellow authors.
