Mother Teresa is quoted as saying, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love,” which to me is a Simple Sunday Reminder.
I harken back many times to the moments when a simple kindness helped me so much. I imagine that many of you have felt that gratitude when it happened to you as well. The receiving of a thoughtful gesture, even as simple as a smile when one is feeling low can feel like something great when love and kindness accompany the small thing.
Simple kindness can be very healing. One doesn’t need big expensive gestures to make a difference. It is in the small acts of loving kindness that we build a bridge between souls and fortify relationships and spread love across continents.
A kind word, a hug, a smile and taking the time to listen with an open heart don’t cost a cent. Sharing a moment with someone in even the simplest of ways often makes more of an impact and a difference than ‘great things’ which aren’t required.
Mother Teresa’s quote has often been a part of my life here. As my life simplified, it has become even more of an integral part of my soul vision. I see clearly how all that has happened in my life has led me to a greater understanding of myself and of others. Peace reigns in my heart. In that simple peace there is just that, simplicity, without the trappings of what is no longer needed.
So my Simple Sunday Reminder is, as always, to continue to shine your heartlights and know that the ‘small things with great love’ matter more than you will ever realize. God Bless. Enjoy your Sunday!
