|Little things DO mean a lot. Your small efforts can make a big difference in someone's life!|
LITTLE ACTS OF LOVE Ever wish you could change the world? You can you know! It doesn't take great wealth or power. You don't need extraordinary talent. You have tremendous power right now to impact this world. Don't believe me? Read on . . . Remember the old song, "Little Things Mean a Lot?"
