'Great opportunities to help others seldom come but small ones surround us every day.' ~Sally Koch
If we're waiting for that big moment or that big opportunity to make a difference, we will be waiting quite a while! These moments are rare and seldom will come our way. But thankfully we are surrounded by so many small moments that will have a far bigger impact. St.Thérese lived her life around this belief. She treasured each day that God gave her, but treasured even more the small moments that she made her own. It was such a down to earth approach in how to make the most of each day and at the same time an example of how to connect with God in such a simple way. No wonder she is hugely popular today.
We are just half way through this month of November. It's a month that many dislike and a month that feels long and dreary. We can brighten up someone's day by making the most of the smaller moments. Maybe something as simple as a phone call, a smile, calling to a friend or neighbour, a word of encouragement or a word of support is all that is needed. It won't make news headlines but for the recipient it could make their day.
