“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and it always reminds me of this quote from him.
Yesterday was Meaghan’s birthday and she reminded me of this quote all weekend.
It was her birthday and she spent the weekend picking up the slack for and taking care of her sick husband, son and puppy.
Meaghan has been such a great mother and wife and exemplifies this quote all the time.
She does all the little things without complaint and as well as Michaelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
And each day all of us have a chance to follow her example and the spirit of the imagined street sweeper.
How could you step up your game on the little stuff you do today?
Make it a great day.
