The Accumulated Goodness

.

“The greatness of the world

in which we live is the

accumulated goodness of

many small and seemingly

inconsequential acts.”

.

~ Gordon B. Hinckley

.

It is great that the world had the kind hearted Mr. Carnegie

who built over 2,500 libraries,

but the real greatness of this world is carried out

by you and the other billions of individual

inhabitants of this earth.

With a kind heart, doing the will of a loving Higher Power

a small kindness a day will keep this world great.

Kindness is the small act that contributes to the greatness of the world.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.

The Grindstone

.

“Life is a grindstone.

Whether it grinds

us down

or

polishes us up

depends on us.”

.

~ Thomas L. Holdcroft

.

Life is a choice, should I stay in bed

or should I get up and do what has to be done.

Life is a choice, should I eat that second piece of cake

or should I push myself away from the table.

Today, know that some choices are harder to make than others

but doing the next right thing does get easier

as you see the person you want to be

shining forth from the mirror.

Life is letting the grindstone polish us up.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
