Don’t underestimate how small moments can illuminate the darkest of times.
When I reflect back on the day, I am most grateful for the small moments that happened. Often unexpected and seemingly insignificant, they become cherished memories and offer us hope.
Birds chirping outside–the first sounds of the morning. My granddaughter wraps her little hand around my finger when we’re walking in the neighborhood–a precious act of love and trust. The burst of flavor of a warm, ripe cherry tomato–the first in this season’s garden to nourish and delight the senses.
Consider all the unseen small moments in life everywhere. Moments of beauty. Acts and words of kindness, love and good. These are rarely if ever, mentioned in the news. We are bombarded by headlines and images of the pain, fear and anger—darkening the world and our spirits.
Hope is renewed by the small good moments and actions of people. Look for them. These small lights of hope will illuminate our way as we move towards a better tomorrow.
