Just a reminder to myself

“When God wants a great work done in the world, or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and thunderbolts. The greates forces in the world are babies. And greater than the babies are the mothers who give them life and mold their thoughts and set their higheste ideals. The hand that rocks the cradle is truly the hand that rules the world.” E.T. Sullivan “The Way to Peace,” p. 258

Note to self: suck it up Buttercup! It is bigger than you think.
