‘If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.’ ~Napoleon Hill
Today is Shrove Tuesday or better known as Pancake Tuesday. This day is always celebrated before the beginning of Lent. Its origins go back in time when fasting was a much stricter part of the Lenten journey. Everyone used up their supplies of fat, butter and eggs before Lent began and so the custom of making pancakes began. The recipe is so simple using a combination of eggs, flour and milk. In life the tastiest and most rewarding moments often come from a combination of a few simple ones put together. It is never one big one on its own. These are rare and exceptional. Often it’s the simple things done well that always stand out. Many pancakes will be made later on. They will be a gentle reminder to us, how important it is to do the small things well.
