The Act of a Teenager

Today I was driving through a busy area and I noticed a teenager helping an elderly man with a walker through some of the construction that had impacted the man’s ability to get through. At first I thought it was a sweet gesture of a grandson, but as I looked again, I noticed the young […]

Food Bank Fridays

Food Bank Fridays started over a year ago as a way to keep my little sorority group of ladies motivated to donate to our local food banks on a regular basis. Then I wondered why not involve more people, so I started a blog with Food Bank Fridays as one of my core components. And […]

The Right Thing To Do

One day this summer as I was leaving my house to go bowling with some friends, I was driving down my street and saw an elderly lady fall to the ground. I Quickly turned my car around to see if she was okay. She couldn’t get up so I helped her to her feet and […]

Small Gesture, Big Deal

I can’t remember what it was we were doing, but I’m sure it was important. A doctor’s appointment, picking up tiles for the renovation that was stressing us out, something. What else would make my husband forget that he left his wallet on the top of his car and drove away? Panic set in when […]
