Recently, my lovely friend Jen gave birth to an idea of gigantic potential. I want to spread the word, and get all of you to register for the baby shower.
Her post reminded me of a quote from Mother Teresa: "If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one".
Often when volunteering, it is sometimes frustrating--wondering if what you are doing is really making a difference. You look next to you and see small change, maybe, you look at the world outside of you and can become crushed in all that needs change. How can it ever be done?
Let's try it anyway, people.
If you can't volunteer time, volunteer talent. If you can't volunteer money, volunteer kindness.
You don't have to register with a group, go to a shelter, belong to a church. You just have to want to change some part of this world for the better....who doesn't want that?
I volunteered to send out a couple of cards or letters each month to places where people might need them: hospices, nursing homes, shelters, etc.
What can you do?
Let us know, so that everything can get tied together and posted for the new year. Let's make it the year of the Blogger. We all talk about how wonderful this world is--let's try to make that world happen outside of our computers, too.
