In my bathroom on my window sill sits a tiny frame. Within the tiny frame are some very powerful words.
“Bless Me into Usefulness Today”
I see these words every day and I ask life for direction.
I don’t know what my usefulness will be, but I know that it will be of value to the greater good.
It may be sharing this quote, it may be saying hello to a stranger and exchanging a smile. It may be helping my family, holding a door, volunteering, buying a ticket to support another’s creativity, doing my work…
It reminds me that I contribute. It tells me I am courageous to be open to allowing life to direct me to where I am needed and then taking part.
I am grateful to be conscious that each day I am out and about, I count, I give and I receive.
This morning when I turned on my radio, I heard it was Oprah Winfrey’s birthday. I immediately thought of this quote, as it was from Oprah I received it many years ago.
