Synopsis: Was it Napoleon who first said, "Good things come in small packages," or someone in the jewelry industry? Whoever coined that phrase had the wisdom to realize that "little things can make a big difference." For the past 10 years, as the entertainment anchor for CNN, Laurin Sydney has been privy to the private lives of Hollywood royalty, where a wish is their command. Past the tall palms and long driveways of dreams . . . lives a world filled with so much success and privilege, where you would assume that anyone would be happy. But happiness is not about that house on the hill—it’s about constructing a home in your heart. . . . This book is filled with joyful jolts and enlightening exercises for your home, your relationships, your kids, your workplace, and you. For example, you can make small, simple gestures that may not help to establish world peace but that can bring peace and joy to your world. . . . One little chocolate kiss, added to the lunchbox of a frightened first grader. . . . A package of dried chicken soup slipped inside a get-well card for your sniffling sister. . . . A hanky with your perfume, strategically placed in your honey’s business luggage. . . . Some "apple" tea for your daughter’s teacher on her birthday . . . A sprig of dried lavender slipped into your pillowcase to ensure sweet dreams . . . We’ve already been taught not to sweat the small stuff, now let some small stuff make a big difference for you.
