Little grains of sand

We sometimes tend to overlook the small positive developments while aiming for the big target.

Today I took Imaan for a walk to the shops near our house. We are having wonderful weather here in Coventry and there were a lot of people around. I was quite confident he would be OK as I have taken him out a couple of times before without any problems. While walking I suddenly realised how much Imaan had come along in less than a year. Previously he would have refused to walk, thrown tantrums or cover his ears and eyes when the cars passed or if it was noisy but now he's totally not bothered at all. However, he wanted me to hold his hands all the time.

In the post office yesterday he was a bit fascinated by the flexible barriers and started pulling it but he stopped when I told him "No!

We are having a lot more eye contact and the words are tumbling out. He loves music and does a really funny dance to Justin Beiber's Baby song which happens to be his favourite song as well.

While walking back, though he didn't say a single word but I felt like he was listening to my every word.


Little drops of water, little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land.
So the little moments, humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages of Eternity.

So the little errors lead the soul away
From the paths of virtue far in sin to stray.
Little deeds of kindness, little words of love,
Help to make earth happy, like the Heaven above.
Julia A. Fletcher Carney (1824-1908)
