Who is she?
Maybe it's Alma.
Maybe she needs you.
When my children were growing up they spent some time each week doing community service.My daughters volunteered at a nearby nursing home.
They visited people and took nail polish to paint some of the ladies fingernails.
While there they met many wonderful people.
One in particular was a 100 year old lady named Alma.
She sang to them and told stories about her life.
Most of her family had died but she had a long lost nephew who lived in Iowa. Alma really missed him. With a little investigating my girls were able to locate him. They called him and eventually he did come to Arizona to see Alma.
She was delighted. My girls cried with happiness that they were able to make a difference in someone's life.
My children tell me that volunteering made a positive impact on their lives.
My son also remembers feeling good about himself for helping out at a local food bank.
This week why don't you try it?
I'll do it too.
Go to a Convelescent home.
Ask an attendant if there's anyone who would enjoy a visit.
Maybe take some pretty polish or just a smile....
Ask them about their hands.
Chances are those hands have done alot.
Or volunteer your extra time somewhere.
Lots of folks need our help.
What you think?
Edited to note: I start a position volunteering here next week.
