Small Things

“Can I come over?” “Sure,” I texted back to my neighbor, wondering why she wanted to come over so late. As I turned my porch light on, here Sue came, food in hand. It was a fancy French dessert she had made and wanted to share, though she already had people at her house for dinner. “You have to eat it now!” she said as she hurried back to continue serving coffee and dessert to their guests. It’s the third food item she’s brought over this week. She and her husband both cook, and I’m beginning to wonder if they think I’m going without enough to eat. But then I realize she’s only doing what she believes good neighbors do, share with others. It may seem like a small thing, but, as Mother Teresa is quoted as saying: “We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
