07 Aug Quiet Wonder
“The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world.
There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor.
But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents.
Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time
to share what we had to give.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have a potential to turn a life around.
It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.”

Reflection: The impact and the power of our lives is immense.
Take time today to reflect on how remarkable you are and spend a few moments in awe at the greatness of your life. Shamelessly acknowledge all that you give to the family and friends fortunate enough to be in your world.
And, remember…A parade does not a hero make.
