Having a heart for making a difference means that something or someone made a difference in my heart first. We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects. This tree and its growing branches , spreading across the sky symbolize it.
And as I sit and think, I get reminded of Wordsworth saying~
"That best portion of a good man s life? His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love."
Current Mood: Thoughtful.
