~~Our fingerprints don't fade from the lives we touch.~~ Unknown
I have a busy life. Full of work, kids, housework, bills.....you know, the usual stuff. Sometimes I don't think I can squeeze in another function, another event, or another cause. BUT.........
I always do. I find the time to help with Relay for Life. With the Annual Day of Caring. With other volunteer driven causes and events. The first annual Lakefest...wonderful event!! Family Fun Day.....happy people!!
Because time is all I have to give. So many people need just a touch, a kind word, to know someone cares.
I used to smoke my free time away. Five, ten, fifteen minutes alone in the backyard, or near my car, or so many other places needing that nicotene fix. Time adds up quickly....hours a day spent alone, just smoking. Sad, now that I think of it.
But now, I give my time. To causes, to others, to make the world different. Simply because I can. Because I care. Because I have the time.
Not everyone has to volunteer. But please know that a kind word, a gentle touch...all have the power to turn a life around. You can do that. I hope you do. It's a good feeling :)
Happy Tuesday, dear quitters. May you know the power of free time!
