I saw this sign in a sweet little coffee shop in Pasadena a few weeks ago. I love the meaning of the words. First of all I had to think about what it was that I would define as “great”. What are the “great” things that we would consider, I guess I would think it would be great if I had the resources to rescue lots of dogs, or to maybe teach to women who were living in a shelter. I think it would be great to travel the world and explore other cultures. I think it would be great to donate my time and teachings to those who need assistance. But what are the small things that we can do with great love?
Today I received a note from one of my students that read:
Thank you for making my life sweeter. I have grown in so many ways because of you!
Now I know what that short note meant to me and it made me realize that I forget the power behind sending someone a short note. There is a greatness and a sweetness that comes when getting a handwritten note from someone you love and care about.
And it is a small thing, but done with love becomes so much greater.
So today let’s all think about what are those small things we can do to add value to another’s life.
