The reality is Life doesn't always go as planned. Help others anyway. -Jeannett, Life Rearranged.
I baked the cookies and then thought I've been too busy lately to bake for my own family let alone bake for somebody else... The rotten truth; life is busy, help others anyway.
As I saw project number 2 I thought hand write a note when I am barely handwriting my grocery list each week?? The rotten truth; life is a bit impersonal. Help others anyway.
Then the gift card to a homeless person. REALLY? I wanted to quit right then. Pretend I hadn't read that. Walk away and say that project really wasn't for me... Then I remembered the homeless person I saw at our 'homeless corner' in town a few weeks ago. As I sat waiting for the light to change from red to green he was right beside my car. I really tried not to look but what was he doing? I glance out of the corner of my eye. He was changing in to a fresh new shirt for the day. All on the side of the road. Beside my car. He didn't stop there, he put on new pants also. Zipped up his backpack, picked his cardboard sign back up and continued standing there. The light changed and I drove off thinking about him. The rotten truth; life isn't all sunshine and roses. Help others anyway.
A book off to a friend. Aww. That one is easy for me. This one pulled me back into the project. I love love love to read. I love to get and give books.
The rotten truth; life can be lovely and messy and busy and impersonal and unplanned. Help others anyway.
I'm going to be late. I'm going to help others anyway.
