Leo Buscaglia : The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.
I read this on Lusi’s blog last week and felt moved by it. It is so true.
Anyway, I just wanted to share that.
Now I am off to make some playdoh for the kids. I found a recipe at Kinder Planet, along with a bunch of other stuff to make these school holidays. While the kids are playing, I am going to get some housework done, although I would prefer to be doing something crafty myself! 🙂
