“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”
I have always admired Helen Keller. When I was a little girl, I watched The Miracle Worker and was in awe. I just couldn’t imagine being both blind and deaf, learning to talk, and then going on to be so successful through inspiring others. My best friend Peggy and I would spend hours learning the alphabet in sign language. As an adult, I would try to get my kids to write reports and read books about Helen Keller, to no avail.
So on this Monday morning as I dread going to work I’m going to think of Helen Keller and appreciate my blessings.
