small kindness

      Some people have such soothing and well-watered and comfortable interior landscapes that it’s a pleasure just to be near them. The ones I know have this in common -- they’ve been choosing to love the people around them, kindness by small kindness, for a long, long time.

“The smallest things become great when God requires them of us.” Archbishop Fenelon

“Love . . . expecting nothing in return. . . .” Luke 6:35
