Can you spare 10 minutes???
Thursday, October 14, 2010
It's only 10 minutes of your day??? I know we are all busy, I myself feel so overwhelmed sometimes, that I want to just crawl into the closet for a day and hide. But 10 minutes out of our day. You could spend the 10 minutes doing something for you or for someone else? You could stop by an animal shelter and walk a dog. You could fix a bowl of soup for an elderly neighbor. Maybe stop in the grocery store and pick up a few of there weekly specials and drop them off at a womans shelter. Take 10 minutes to go through a few old books and donate them to a library. Wake up early and and stretch for 10 minutes. Sit at the bus stop and visit with an elderly passenger. Read a book to a toddler, even if they aren't listening. Take 10 minutes to check on a friend that may be having a hard time.
I have had a very rough week, but when I sit back and think of what a blessed life I have and all the things that I can do to make things better for others, It really makes me feel wonderful. I have spent 10 minutes a day all week helping others. Lets see what we can do today and any other day to make our lives and others a better one!!! You never know what good may come from it, and how AMAZING it will make you feel! If you read my last blog and were concerned about my well being, just think of all the folks out there that don't have you or anyone else for support. Lets take those 10 minutes and see how many lives we can touch!!!
My son has seen the things that I have been doing and decided he can do something with his spare time also. He has began asking neighbors for the empty cans, he plans to recycle the aluminum and donate the money to my the food pantry at my Grandmothers church. He makes me proud to be his MOM!!!
