I saw this quote in an office of a Social Worker who day in and day out faces those, who are at the end of their financial line, at the end of their hope in working to provide for their families, at the end of their faith that a different possibility was available to them, meeting each story and person with a smile in her heart.

Everyone can be great

Because everyone can serve

You don’t have to have a degree to serve

You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve

You only need a heart full of grace

A soul generated by love.

These words by Martin Luther King Jr. on a faded piece of copy paper hanging blue thumbtacked to the office cubicle wall permeate the day in and day out efforts that unfold as these Angels work within the boundaries of a system pushed to its limits stretching where they can and living in a practice of humanity where everyone is treated with respect. Where the difficulties of circumstance continue to grow but who never stop believing a kind word, a practice of service and an action of love to transform someone’s life.

Make today a day where you brighten someone’s day. Be great in your actions and your efforts.

Be great

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

As an interesting side note on the influences of Love. Martin Luther King, Jr. was influenced directly by the work of Mahatma Gandhi.  Check out Gandhi’s originating thought…

Gandhi lose yourself in service

Here’s how MLK, Jr. gave life to this thought…

(add whatever ‘feels right’ allow it to be your reality evenif it is just for one moment, revel in the idea that there is another way to look at it and allow yourself the privilege of true sightbeyond your perceptions because whatever follows ‘I will consider the possibility there is another way’ will be the direction that you set – make it count)

For the next 100 days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way, I won’t worry about what I don’t have, I will allow myself to be in service to what my heart full of love requests.
