My # 10 would be to GIVE MORE. Give of my time, and efforts, to those around me that seem to need it. So many people these days need something....sometimes they don't even know what that would be. If we could be more aware of those around us, close to us, that we see almost every day, we would know what they need.
A kind word; a hug; a smile; ask a question that would lend help.
I told you yesterday I don't have many talents that one could see. But I do have the gift of encouragement and if nothing else, I can do that for someone. I am a big letter writer.
I have written the President over the years; I write to corporations with things that I like about their company or a good deed that one of their employees has done.
I use CVS as my pharmacy and I write their general offices on a regular basis. From the front door to the back of the store where their pharmacy is located, it is almost perfect. They know me; they always say hello, may I help you, and have a good day. The workers in the pharmacy know me by name, and go above and beyond to help me with anything they can. The store manager is so friendly and finds me in the store to say hello. Why wouldn't I write about these things. I write and the district manager shows them what I told the corporation.
At church, I try to pick someone I see that might need an encouraging word and go to them. I either tell them how nice they look, or how glad I am that they are there today. You can always find 'something' to encourage someone.
Now, tell me what your #10 would be.
