Galadriel: Why the Halfling?
Gandalf: I do not know. Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay… small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because I am afraid… and he gives me courage.
I am overwhelmed by this truth today and it fills my heart with elation at the simple and yet most profound truth of it. A mother who chooses to cook and clean everyday without fail for her children in her infinite love, A father who trudges off to work to face a nasty boss to be able to support his children, A lover who gently calms his loved one in spite of having the most horrid day himself, a friend who takes the time to just listen when nothing else can be done and so on..These little acts of sacrifice define every moment of all that is good on this earth, of all that deserves to be protected with a quiet fierceness on this earth. And I for one am grateful to be a recepient of love and kindness of this nature from my loved ones and hope to continue this circle one little deed at a time
