A Good Deed for the Day

Helping Do you remember when people actually used to say, "I've just done my good deed of the day?" Seems like it was so long ago and far away, about as quaint as crocheting, or having a glass of lemonade on the front porch on a hot Summer day.

Taking Measure

Thanksgiving Table A friend of mine recently helped pack the apartment of her nephew who died from a sudden heart attack in his late 30’s. It was a generous and difficult task wrapping the items that represented his life, some to give away, some to store in memory. And yet, as she grieved for his loss, she looked around at her family in gratitude at her blessings ...
