Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. --Winnie the Pooh

No big news today, no access-related drama. Just a good day working with a good puppy...nice for a change.
As we walked today I was thinking of how so many extraordinary things are achieved through small, daily effort. My wonderful Grandma crocheted each of her granddaughters an heirloom-quality tablecloth or bedspread as a wedding present. The tablecloth Grandma made me is among my most treasured possessions. But I cherish almost equally the little piece of paper in her handwriting that she gave me along with it: a log of how many stitches...and how many hours...went into her labor of love. I was thinking today that these ordinary little walks with Alfie are like that...each one a little "stitch" helping to build the valuable gift I hope he'll become. It all adds up!
