we are a little family in a big world.
ours is a little home in a big city.
but if our family and our home can be a little drop of peace in the ocean of chaos
or a little oasis of grace and renewal in the parched and barren desert
or a little open window into the great wide expanse of beauty and wonder
then we will have done well.
“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. I realized that if every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness and there would be no wild flowers to make the meadows gay… Perfection consists in doing His will, in being that which He wants us to be.” – St. Therese of Lisieux
