Take Care of Little Things


There was a little girl named Mary who whined, “I don’t have anything to do.” Her mother found a map of the world in a magazine and cut it out along the lines of each country into a big jigsaw puzzle. She told her to put it all together, thinking it would keep her busy for hours. Minutes later Mary came back whining, “I still don’t have anything to do.” Her mother checked to see if she really was through with the puzzle, and sure enough, she was. So Mother asked, “Mary, how did you do it so fast?” To which Mary responded, “There was a picture of a family on the other side. I put the family together and the world was okay.”
