In today's day and age, a lot of times it is all about me, myself, and I. If it is not about you, it is about the latest celebrity. We need to focus more on helping others. When my Grandma was recovering from surgery last summer, members of our church were kind enough to bring our family dinner. We have returned the favor by making meals for several of our friends and church members who are going through treatments, and surgery. It is no bother, we cook for ourselves anyway, so why not make extra for someone who is in need?
You don't have to spend hours upon hours every week volunteering. Stop in at Wal-Mart and get a bag of dog food and take it to the local Humane Society. Make some cookies and deliver them to homebound people. Take some flowers to residents of a nursing facility. The little things add up.
By doing these little things, not only will you brighten someone's day, you will feel better about yourself as well!
I'm going to be doing my part as well! Later this summer my family and I will be cooking a meal for a local shelter.
What good deeds have you done for others? Leave me a comment and let me know!
