We are a ‘Giving People' in this country, no matter our personal
circumstances. Always have been and always will be! This is
especially true around the holidays. It's often hard to decide
where to best to spread our giving.
This link will take you to a site that may help you decide what
best fits your personal desires:
I hope you find this helpful and wish you the best the holidays
have to give.
As always, when giving we need to exercise care to
ensure our generosity is going to where we intended
Life makes you walk that delicate balance between Making It Happen and Letting It Happen.
With all the turmoil going on in the world today we hear a great deal about refugees and the challenges they face. I can't imagine what it must be like for them especially when whole families can be wiped out instantly during their treacherous treks.
The recent story and photo of that little boy's body washing up on shore was really heartbreaking and is a life cut short that should not have happened.
Why this world will not accommodate all peoples and their dreams of a livable life is beyond me. So much selfishness and hatred is just not necessary.
Most of us want only one thing out of life – to fulfill their dream of a better life for our loved ones.
Right now the cry is: “Black Life Matters”! I totally understand it but this is only partially true. In reality it should be: “All Life Matters”, from the just conceived child to that person who may be seconds away from the end of their corporeal existence – “All Life Matters”, period!
Here is a story of what refugees brought with them when fleeing their homeland – what would you have in your bag:
“You may have convinced yourself that giving is impossible because you have too little for yourself. If you are not generous when it is difficult, you will not be generous when it is easy. Generosity is a function of the heart, not the wallet” Dr Wayne Dyer
There are those among us who care only about what is best for
themselves, myself included at times in my life.
Then there are those who care only for what they can teach and
give to others.
Dr. Dyer was and always will be one of those selfless individuals
who make our lives richer!
Rest In Peace until your next adventure begins…
This is why we hold this day so dear:
