Little things... big blessings

"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble."   --Helen Keller

I'm borrowing this quote from Suzanne at Privet & Holly.  It pretty much sums up why I felt so... antsy, stuck, unmotivated in January. And guilty. I felt guilty for having such a good life and not doing more to affect the larger world. *Sigh*

Yes, silly of me, very silly. Fortunately, I got over it. I'm sure I'll get around to changing the world eventually. In the meantime, I have kids to raise, friends to visit with before they move, laundry to fold, books to read... and a blog to keep up with!

The devil wanted to remind me of what I'm not doing so as to distract me from my current responsibilities and blessings. But the Lord reminded me that the little things do count. The point is to find Joy in them!

And I have lots of potential. I don't have to do Everything. Right. Now.

Plus, the sun came out!!

Spring has sprung in California! Apologies to those of you in colder climates. I'll feel guilty about that, too -- until July, when you're experiencing a lovely, warm, green season, and we've dried up and hung ourselves from the A/C vents.


In the meantime, let's make the most of every moment... whatever the weather.
