"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost. For want of the shoe, the horse was lost. For want of the horse, the rider was lost. For want of the rider, the battle was lost. For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail!"
~Old English Rhyme~
There was no author listed by SP other than an "Old English Rhyme." But I sure would love to know exactly who penned this...because if they used this as the basis for what NOT to do...then they must have led a truly fulfilling and accomplished life. Imagine...never putting yourself down because you thought that what you did was too little...but rather...recognizing that the simplest little action on your part has the most incredible potential to touch family, friends, and strangers, moving emotional and physical mountains, giving someone else back hope that "it"...whatever that may be in their lives, can change, can be accomplished, can be overcome. How wonderful to know and accept in our hearts that we ARE important, no matter how insignificant we thought ourselves to be, and that we do hold a place in the grand scheme of things. All of our actions, together, form the whole.
