Wake Up Wednesday

I'm still figuring out the internet stuff, but meanwhile I stopped by my sister's house to write today's post.  Thanks for your suggestions and help.

Last week's challenge was to pick up trash.  I was floored at how easy it was to teach my kids to do this.  We talked about what littering means and BAM - they got it.  We picked up all sorts of stuff and they were proud to do it.

This week's challenge is to find someone who is struggling or sad and do something small for them.  I know that seems very general, but sometimes you hear someone is having a hard time and then the phone rings or a child asks for your attention and you forget.  It doesn't even require a grand, massive gesture.  It can be easy to find a small way to let them know you're thinking about them.  You could make a phone call.  You could deliver a treat.  You could send a note.  Life can be pretty darn hard, so I don't think it'll be difficult to find someone who is down.

Now, how did the trash collecting go?  I'd love to hear about it.  Thanks for being here.
