Mother Teresa said, "We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love."
I love this quote because it reminds me of all those small things I do each day for those in my family, and inspires me to do them with great love. Today, a friend of mine did what she probably considers a small thing- she invited me over for a cup of tea and a quick Indian-style (as in, from India) brunch. Each of us had limited time, so I was just at her house for a bit while our boys enjoyed the crisp, sunny air outside. As I sat at her counter sipping tea, watching her scramble eggs and listening to her wisdom, I was touched by the great love with which she did such a small thing.
I just wanted to share that today, as I was reminded anew that so often it is those little things- a scrambled egg, a cup of tea, and a listening ear- that mean so, so much.
