Making a difference…

With appreciation“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily difference we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.” ~Marian Wright Edelman

I recently saw this quote and it reminds me of presenting at a women’s retreat a couple years ago. We were talking about making a difference and one of the attendees raised her hand and said, “I was in a parking lot and felt like I needed to hug a woman who was walking towards me. This is not my norm!! We did embrace. She immediately started crying and then told me she had given birth to a stillborn baby three days earlier.”

This certainly made a lovely difference in both of their lives. In these times of uncertainty, increased violence and fear running amok, this is important to remember that often times it is the small things that make a big difference in people’s lives, isn’t it?!
