You're Help Is Not Unnoticed

      Sometimes we feel that things we do go unnoticed by other people or that our contributions don't matter. Sometimes we feel completely lost in the crowd that just keeps getting bigger and that nobody understands that at one moment or another we are finally just going to snap. I would like to tell you that what we do does not go unnoticed, it changes lives and generations and even if not imminently realized by those we serve it is always realized by our Heavenly Father.  Service is not just going to another country and doing something huge, it includes the little things that take our time and heart that show people we care and remembered them. That is what counts! We don't have to serve in a different country or be famous to bless the lives of hundreds. Through one person there are generations and generations to come. What you do matters and it will impact the future of God's children.
     Don't give up. There have been so many times I just want to throw in the towel and say "I'm through!", there have been so many times I just want to give into the lie that "I'm useless", but I can't! WE can't! There is so much WE do that goes unnoticed by US, OURSELVES. We never know what someone is going through or how just one smile, one hug, a note or some food can make a difference. What you do makes a difference, even if you don't realize it at the moment, you are somebody else's angel in their time of need, you are somebody's shoulder when they need somewhere to rest their head.
     I Loved this video because not only does it show the mom and all she does, it shows all the lives she touches and how it helped them or made a difference. It shows how just one person can make a difference in the life of someone else. :) Have a wonderful week and remember you are needed, important and what you do makes a difference.
