What wilI we make of this day? We all have many more choices than any of us are aware of. Who considers themselves in any way heroic? It is so hard to see the hero inside of us. And it so easy to see it in other people. People gravitate towards celebrities and famous people. They want to feel that someone is excelling at what they do. But have you ever really looked at your own life, the daily good that you do?
But have you ever really looked at your own life, the daily good that you do? The people who give out the most love are my heroes. They are the mothers of this world, they are the grandmothers of this world, they are the big brothers and uncles of this world. They go quietly about the business of helping people. They are the unsung heroes.
The neighbor who takes out an older person’s trash, the parent who walks the child to school, the person who visits someone who is lonely, they are my ideas of heroes. We may not consider ourselves heroes. We may look in the mirror and see an ordinary face, looking back at us.
I know that God is Love. Love considers each of us angels on earth, for all the love we give out and the service that we do, no matter how insignificant it seems to us. So keep putting love out there, keep laughing, keep enjoying life, knowing that when we do, the world is a better place for all. The love we give out will come back to us ten times over.
Celebrate the ordinary hero in yourself today.
