A Helping Hand

This video is such a cute approach to my theme for today.

A small group of very loving and caring people has been formed to offer additional support to the local Needs Council.  The purpose is to perform some odd jobs for folks who are elderly or disabled, and to do so without a lot of accolades and recognition.  Our assignment today was to repair a by-pass door that no longer by-passed.  People who are naturals at fixing things seem to have an uncanny ability to just analyze the situation, get out a screw driver (and maybe a couple of other tools), and get it fixed.  That's exactly what two of our fellows did today.  Then they also tightened up a railing on the client's back patio as well.  

As we were leaving, the client mentioned something about paying them, and "G" said, "Our payment is your smile!"  Isn't that really what it's all about?  I'm pretty sure our group was more blessed than the client.

It's our opportunity to 'pass it on'.

Look for your opportunity today to make someone's day brighter.

Also be sure to share how you are volunteering, give someone else an idea!
