Give what you have. To some it may be better than you dare think." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We have talents and gifts we can share.

The gift of time everyone has it you just have to find it and share it. Spend some time here reading someone's blog or commenting on their status . You can give them a shout out for their successes it will make the world to them.

Give the gift of your heart. Smile more , be kind . A few short words today can mean such a big difference to someone. Change a life.

The gift of money if you have extra money or extra food share , share the little that you have and some child will not go to bed hungry.

Everyone has talent if you are good at organizing , or have ideas how not to procrastinate. Let us know what you do for exercise how you succeed. Please share. I have a friend who is great at finding the funny side of life she makes me life so much better.

There is no need to be a rocket scientist share your smile your love your time your talents . Just share you can and do change the world when you do.

Thank you for sharing a little time with me it does make a world of difference in my life. Hugs and have the best day ever, because that often happens when you share.

    What a great blog!! Thanks for sharing it with us!! Being kind and sharing a smile or a laugh can be very very important! I love your quote!!

Thanks for dropping by my blogs and for sharing your positive encouragement!!

I need to get to a large city that has a craft store to look for colored chalk...I found a recipe on Pinterest for chalk paint and will have to try it on my blackboard and see if it's just cornstarch, water and food coloring..would really make my blackboard art something special!

emoticon Sending you a sunny side up weekend!!

    I have way too much laundry and would be happy to give it to anyone who wants it. ;) I'm also pretty well stocked up on junk food, so if anyone needs any of that, I'd be happy to share. tee-hee! Great blog and great suggestions! emoticon

  So true. We are responsible to make our little corner of the world the best that we can through using our talents and resources. Living in LA I see what happens when those that have refuse to share with the have-nots. It dehumanizes those who have-not. As I teach groups about working with homeless, I explain how invisile the homeless can become and what a difference simply saying "hi" and smiling can make for an individual. Keep up the great work of encouraging others.

    HI just thought I would stop in and say hi. I don't always respond, cos I can't sit here long so tend to read, get up and walk around and then go to the next email. lol
I wish I could volunteer at something right now, but because of long term disablity I am not allowed as it would be considered work which I am not able to do. Sigh there is a diff. but whatever.
I am good at organizing lol when I get started and have room. I can sort and purge no problem but lately it is finding room for stuff cos dad now has our entire basement. lol
HUGS and have a super day and weekend!

    emoticon Blog today and nice timing with the week-end coming up to remind all of us we need to share with those around us of our abundance.

recently i signed up to support some former church members who are going on a teaching mission to Alaska in July.
I am also using the time I have to de-clutter some rooms and give to goodwill what I and others in the family hare no longer using.
I donate 1 hour of time per week to a local food bank and help sort incoming food and check expiration dates.
You are right we all have something to give and share with others. Thank you for sharing with us at SP today
