Little things but great

When we're dead and buried what mark will we leave on the world?  In our pride we probably think that we might write the world's best-selling book, invents some labour-saving gadget or discover the cure for some life-threatening disease. But the reality, of course, will be somewhat different.

Most of our lives are not made up of headline events.  Our days are calmer and much more about the ordinary comings and goings.  Maybe that's why many of the saints show us that the way to heaven is by striving to do the little things of life well.  For it is the little things that make the most difference.
