Subject: Re: Quotation of the Day
I agree that the drop in the ocean seems so insignificant but so does one rain drop upon the earth. one smile, one handshake, etc. It all starts out with one of something, like the first step of a long journey. If you had to contemplate the "one" of anything, nothing would get done. How many times must you hit the nail with the hammer in order to build the house? If you thought about it no houses would get built.
Your contribution to the whole depends on your insight. Something as simple as a smile, or in my case, just the touch of the human hand, can make all the difference in the world. People want to know that you are there, and that you care.
There are reasons why we never know how our one drop affects others. It would never allow us to move on, we would be caught up in the moment and not think about the future. We would be so enamoured with ourselves that we would not move forward, and contribute another drop to the ocean.
So my thought for the day is this: It is the small things in life that move us, it is the bigger things in life that sustain us, and in the end we answer to a higher being about what we did in this life. It will be reveled then, and you will know how you did.
