Thomas Kinkade in his book, Lightposts for Living, asked this question, What small things can I do today bring a blessing to someone else? He talked about small, not huge, gigantic, or enormous things. How often do we think in order to make a difference, it [the thing has to be large, or on a world-wide scale? In the rush of the world we forget the power of the “small.” A smile, laughter, a phone call, card, or your welcoming spirit can do much to transform the people and space around you. Let’s commit ourselves to be a blessing to someone else by giving away lots and lots of small things. Remember, both receiver and giver will be blessed.
Enjoy this small gift of beauty.
