A few weeks ago a customer came into My Saint My Hero looking for a specific necklace for her daughter. She asked for Claudia D. and so Claudia stopped what she was doing to talk with this customer who was asking for a Miraculous Mary medal. Since we do not have this medal on a necklace, Claudia immediately began to think, “What can we do?” So Claudia pulled out her own personal rosary and hanging as a charm was Miraculous Mary medal that Christine and I gave her after one of our pilgrimages. Claudia immediately took it off her rosary, got some chain and created a necklace for this customer. The customer was brought to tears over how Claudia cared so much to give her one of her very own medals. That is an extraordinary act of love out of an ordinary moment…
Sometimes we may get discouraged that our acts of kindness and love are miniscule and meaningless, however, it is little acts of kindness done with great love that make those moments extraordinary.
“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
― Mother Teresa
May we all choose love – recognize it, accept it, and share it with everyone we meet!
