Respect and Love For My Elders

A few months ago one of our fellow bloggers provided a link to Love For Our Elders, a non-profit organization of volunteers who collect and deliver handcrafted letters and cards to the senior community. I loved their mission so much, I could hear this orotund voice in me saying “SIGN UP NOW!” and I quickly became a “Kindness Ambassador.” I’m so excited my first batch of cards are finally en route. Unfortunately, I only took one picture and it shows only a partial front view of one card and the ornate envelopes for the others.

It wasn’t looking too good for me in the beginning because my creative mind far exceeded my elementary artistic skills, but when it was all said and done I was pretty proud of myself. However, while working on my fourth card I began getting frustrated over a few failed drawings and decided to print out part of it. Hence the perfect sun, rainbow and trees. At least I was able to personalize it with beautiful yellow, powder blue and green colors and several unique butterflies.

This isn’t an attempt at penance for any past wrongdoing but hopefully I’ve earned a stamp in my passport to heaven. 😆

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
