I have a young cousin who will face numerous heart surgeries. A lot of her medical procedures are provided through Medicare/Medicaid, but the expense for her young parents and little brother to stay in the area [3 hours away from home] are very hard for the family to come up with. Wishing to make a donation, but with my own funds being tight, I took books in my house that I deemed non-necessary to a used book store to start a fund so that I can provide the young family with at least a day's
worth of expenses prior to the surgery. I have rolled pennies and nickels, and will be finding other things to do so as to meet my goal by the end of January. It also will help to take care of some of the clutter in my house!
Looking at life, seeing it through the eyes of a child is the most beautiful thing there is. I have my GD a lot and we do things all the time. I get really tired but always continue on no matter what we are doing. the young can keep us young in body and mind. We ran around the yard thowing the balls to the dogs, had a blast. We bowled today, she is so cute when she gets a strike. Might have 5 zeros but has 2 strikes that's what counts. Enjoy the young, let them give you a lease on life, live.
