Love is the greatest thing in life

The greatest things in our life are the little things that we many times deem unimportant when they occur.

When we become old and gray our fondest memories will be of the little things that happened to us and not the big things that happened to us.

The smiling face of a little child, a small episode at a gathering of friends, a comforting word during the time of need, the final joyful moments we had with our long departed friends and relatives.

These are some of the things that will be important to us then.

After much thought we will finally see that what is really important is those little things that happened in our lives where there was an exchange of love and joy.

Love is the greatest thing in life.
