Love Thy Neighbour As Thy Self


We can't do great things in this life . . . 
We can only do small things with great love.
 

-- Mother Theresa

One day a man was walk­ing along the beach when he noticed
a boy pick­ing some­thing up and gen­tly throw­ing it into the ocean.
Approach­ing the boy, he asked, “What are you doing son?”
The boy replied, “Throw­ing starfish back into the ocean. 
The waves are up and the tide is going out.  If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you real­ize there are miles and miles of beach and hun­dreds of starfish? 
You can’t make a difference!”
After lis­ten­ing politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the waves.  Then, smil­ing at the man, he said…”
I made a dif­fer­ence for that one.”

Each action has its importance, In this story, the boy was trying to save the starfish. No one is going to give him any awards for saving the star fishes and the star fishes are not going to thank him either, for saving their life, the boy knows it, but still he does it, why?..... because, he cares…. He  values his service and he knows that he has done something lasting, something memorable for all the star fishes he threw in the ocean.  

Likewise, whatever small things  you do in real life, do it with love and care, it makes a lot of difference . Just know that the power to make a small difference in the life of others is in you.  Sometimes, there would not be anybody to appreciate you. But still, don’t let this opportunity pass by because, the difference is being made in your life.  
  

Fill each moment with small, kind acts. And you’ll fill your life with great and lasting love & value for yourself.

Bye & Take Care
