Today’s picture of tiny cactus flowers got me thinking about the way we live our lives. We are all bombarded with marketing material on social media, TV, emails etc, especially at Christmas. The pressure on people to ‘spoil’ loved ones with lavish gifts is immense.
But over the past few weeks we have seen that sometimes small acts of kindness are worth much more than expensive gifts.
Helping vulnerable people who are self isolating with a little shopping, or giving someone who maybe lonely a quick call is immensely valuable to those that receive, but also for those that donate their time. I know I feel a great sense of achievement after helping people whilst volunteering in the mental health charity I support.
So raise a glass to the little things in life – They are equally beautiful, just like this little flower.
