I read a devotional at the beginning of June about what it means to love little. Every day since reading this article how to love little has been in the front of my mind.
You can read the devotional here:
To Love Little Is Our Call – Blessed Is She
The author of this article is SO RELATABLE. I mean, seriously. I cannot tell you how many times I’m at my wit’s end and just want to tell everyone to be quiet and go away. But reading this made me realize that doing so can take others joy.
Loving big is so easy. There is always a gesture to be done. It’s easy to bring a family dinner, donate to the church monthly, pass down your kids’ clothes.
But loving little is so easily passed up.
My challenge for you is to take today to love little.
Call a friend you miss.
Call a family member you haven’t seen in a while.
Play a board game with your child.
Read your kid their favorite book.
Pull up the neighbor’s trash can.
Grab that piece of trash in the yard on your walk.
Play your kids’ favorite song in the car.
Greet people you walk by.
Make time to have a drink with your spouse in the evening.
Say thank you at the checkout line.
Hold the door open for someone.
These acts cost us nothing. They take a moment of our time. They can make someone’s entire day.
To me, loving little is finding ways to create moments of joy. These moments aren’t just joy for others, but sharing joy with someone else.
I challenge you to slow down and take the opportunity to love little.
Ps. I highly recommend signing up for the Blessed is She daily emails. These 2-minute reads are my favorite part of the day.
