it's nice to be reminded how small & important you are

I'm on holiday from work. This is a good thing. however can occasionally lead to moments of getting caught up in my own self-importance.

I was catching up on some reading earlier (while listening to babyB bounce around in her cot...) and was struck by how small this planet is.

How minute.

How microscopic.

When you see it in context.

I guess the same could be said for traffic jams, delayed post, rude people and other things that ruffle our feathers from time to time.

We are not the centre of the universe. But we are all loved like we were all that mattered. And that's a very encouraging thought.
