“Not all of us can do great things. Â But we can do small things with great love.” BlessedÂ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta lived an extraordinary life. Â She has many, many encouraging and inspiring quotes, but the one above is one of my favorites.
I think this quote resonants with me particularly as a mom. Â The vocation of mothering is often a thankless job. Â We do a million “small things” day in and day out. Â Many small jobs that most people in our home don’t notice.
Most of us aren’t called to go to a different country and take care of thousands of orphans and elderly people. Â No, our mission field is at our kitchen table, our family room, our family vehicle. Â However, that mission is just as important, just as great in the eyes of God.
It matters that we are making peanut butter and jelly for lunch, again. Â It matters that we are reviewing multiplication facts, again.Â It matters that we are reading Tumford the Terrible, yet again. Â It matters to our children, our husband, our home, our mission field.
The outside world will say otherwise, but don’t listen.
Doing these small tasks with great love matters.
