Make a Difference Monday!

I will start with a big giant Thank You to all our family & friends that have been such a great help lately!  It is never fun when life tosses you that little unexpected curve ball.  And it is also true that you never appreciate your good health enough!   I am happy to be feeling so much better and am very grateful for all the prayers, well wishes, understanding & help I received!

I noticed something when I was feeling so terrible-that nothing makes you feel better than helping someone else.  A burden shared is a lighter load right?

We here at BMC have decided to participate in Make a Difference Mondays!   It is a great idea really, and you can pick whatever works for you.  The idea is simple…do something for someone else, without expecting anything in return.

Ideas are as endless as your imagination…Carry in groceries for an elderly neighbor, pay for the order of the car behind you at Starbucks, help a frazzled neighborhood mom to an hour of peace by inviting her kids to play with yours for awhile, visit the local nursing home during your lunch hour-be that visitor someone there is desperate for.

Whatever idea you choose to use, you will spread unexpected encouragement in a regularly rough day, and you cannot help spilling some of that happiness on yourself!

Let me know what you think.  What ideas do you have?!
