Thoughts On The Power of One



We live in a society which thrives on power---the more the better. Therefore, we are apt to overlook situations involving the power of one; we prefer the power of two or five or ten. But we should never underestimate the power of one. Consider the following circumstance:

One depressed person living alone plus the adoption of one abandoned animal living in a shelter since May equals unmeasurable happiness, delight, and contentment on the part of both. Who knows if the end result is tenfold, a thousandfold, or a millionfold? And who cares? We have just seen the miracle of the power of one.

Great post, Lillian.

We have rescued 7 cats and 2 dogs and each one of them has added a considerable amount of happiness to our lives. A wonderful exchange on behalf of each member of our loving family.
