TIMES HAVE CHANGED
Friday, December 13, 2013
hi all - i hope you are all taking time to 'smell the coffee' at this very busy time. every year we reflect, regroup and make plans . we make plans for ourselves and families, people we care about.
i don't know about you but , when i was growing up and right into this present day, one of the prayers has always been ' for world peace'. the song 'feed the world' from over thirty years ago still plays on the radio; as do many with that very noble theme.
it would be possible if it were not for the humans who run this world.
but until that changes, there will never be world peace.
so my prayer has changed some what and it encompasses the world i can have an affect on.
i respectfully suggest to every one - please do the same. this year vow to change the world around YOU.
one thing might be if your young kids are all wrapped up in tech devices so that you never have a conversation face to face any more - you change the rules and make a tech free time and zone in your home. maybe go back to a good old fashioned game night. pop some corn - and be interactive.
maybe there is something you can make better at your work place, or on your way to work.
i wrote a blog about random acts of kindness - and i still love to do that - the opportunities pop up all the time - big or small. if you give some one a smile you have made a positive impact.
become more involved in your immediate community - the food bank needs your help so much, clothing drive/goodwill all need donations, all of God's creatures right down to the littlest living thing - all are in need of our attention.
if every one would just take care of their own space - we will be closer to a 'world peace of a kind'.
btw - my neighbor is still in hospital - she will be there until at least end of jan./14.
so we are making a schedule to fit her into our holiday plans. it will be fun and i am sure the other patients who are well enough to join in will enjoy too,.
i don't know about you but when i do something for any body else I WIN - i am selfish that way!!!! have a wonderful safe healthy holiday time and watch out for your neighbors.
