Day three of babysitting for little Kate. Something we all crave is to live a life with meaning. We want to do something important, be in the news, get noticed but taking care of Kate has taught me again that it's the little things that really count. I was reminded of Brother Lawrence today who did the small things with love and lived in in awareness of the presence of God in all things. I plan to give my all to changing diapers and warming milk. Gotta go Kate lost a sock.
