Give A Helping Hand

Do you know someone who could use a helping hand? Do you know someone who might be suffering from Compasion Fatigue? Maybe you could sit with there loved one for an hour a day or once a week. Buy them some groceries. Cut their grass. Clean their house. Bring them library books or your books that you have read. Send them a pizza.  Any number of things that we might take for granted would be most welcomed and appreciated by them. Look around and see who you could give a helping hand too. You can make the world a better place. You might even prevent someone’s death or suicide. Give it some thought and pass the idea around.

The Trading Jar

My neighbor gave us this jar last week filled to the brim with his delicious home-made vegetable soup. It was hearty and filling. This man likes to cook and does it very well. As a lot of you know I do not like to cook but every once in awhile I am inspired to try something. I have always made chocolate oatmeal cookies just not in many many years. So I made some yesterday and put some in the jar. I dressed it up with a ribbon and after taking the picture I added a matching tag that said, The Trading Jar. So I will let you know what I get back in the jar.

A Good Man

At 18
He was,
Young and energetic,
Eager to start a new life,
Bright and diligent.

At 50
He had,
Aged well,
Traveled the world,
Endured pain and suffering.

At 75
He is,
Wise and generous,
Rich with experience,
And enjoying a good life.
