It is a symptom of something sad that a special day has to be declared to get people to give to others. When you practice kindness, you can give every day, all day. Doing so enriches you, at least one other, and creates a bit of peace in this world.

Another suggestion: Small or large the really homeless will appreciate a care bag. Here are directions for a generous one from the Motherload ; wish I knew the scammers from the sufferers. I give smaller care bags.

Life is a struggle, many need very little help to live a good life. If you can read this you can give to others. Giving and being kind matters. The more who share and care while here in this world, the more likely some will know peace on earth. May you always have enough to give to others.

DISCLAIMER ONE: EMOTIONAL FITNESS TRAINING IS NOT THERAPY Even the most learned researchers and therapists quarrel. Take their advice and mine carefully. Don’t just listen to your heart, but also think; don’t just think, listen to your heart. Heart and head working together increase the odds you will find useful advice amid all the promises and hopes pushed at you by others. As others have noted, take what seems useful, leave the rest.
DISCLAIMER TWO: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. I will understand if you don’t follow, like or share my blog. Not only am I dealing with an aging brain, but all of my life I have been plagued by dysgraphia–a learning disability. If you hang in with me, thank you.
