The last few days I've been reminded that small doesn't always mean insignificant. In fact, small can be quite powerful.
The fragrant olive bush (Osmanthus fragrans)in our backyard just started blooming. Even though each flower is no bigger than a pencil eraser, they all pump out an amazing amount of fragrance.
Case in point: every time I step out the door, I can smell the flowers. Nevermind the fact that the shrub is at least 40 feet away.
In fact, this shrub is a big part of why I fell in love with the backyard and bought the house. Well, the shrub and also the orange tree, but that's another story for another time.
At any rate, every time I smell these tiny flowers I'm reminded of an old saying:
"If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in the dark with a mosquito."
Ain't that the truth!
