I am still happy by the way. I know its been awhile since my last post. Today was one of those days where I was tired, groggy, slow moving and sweating a lot. Lots of hard work does pay off. I was approached by a lady at work asking me if I wanted to donate some Calla plant bulbs to an organization called Little Friends, Inc. They are a private, non-profit organization serving children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. The lady in charge of the organization said,”Thanks for thinking of us! We’re excited to have an opportunity to beautify our campus and residential properties.” I enjoy volunteering my time to various charities.
Just this past weekend, I rode my bicycle 100 miles to raise lots of money for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I personally raised over $400 (as a team….almost $75,000) and am very excited and proud to say that I participated in the 2014 Bike MS: Tour de Farms. Many thanks to all the folks who have done a lot of work in organizing a large team of us Petal Pushers to take part in this. It’s an issue close to my heart. My mother-in-law, Aunt, Uncle, friends and co-workers are just a few of more than 2.1 million people affected by MS worldwide.
Finally, when I dropped off mail at the post office, I accidentally spilled a mail tub and several envelopes, letters and packages came tumbling down on the pavement. But a gentleman helped me pick up the mess and gave me a cool pen. It was kinda weird but also kind of nice and put a smile on my face. Generosity goes both ways.
