One Hour A Week

I am asking all Americans to pick one item below and dedicate one hour a week to helping in your community.  One hour can change someone's life.

1. Advocate to change laws, rules or policies within your workplace to better the community
2. Homelessness especially children & veterans
3. Poverty- provide information for services
4. Hunger - Cook a meal for homeless
5. Transportation to the doctor, grocery, pharmacy, work, or church.
6. Employment- Share Opportunities with the community
7. Troubled Youth- Mentor Youth
8. Accompany a domestic violence or abuse victim to a court hearing
9. Be a listener to someone who is struggling with Mental Illness
10. Transportation to Addiction Recovery Groups

Always remember if you see something, please say something. Many times word of mouth in a community can get those in need some assistance.  I think of we all listen less to the news and pay attention to our immediate surroundings; then, we can genuinely help one another.

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do.

Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
