Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to refrain from speaking negatively about others.  While I felt like I normally did pretty well with this one, it came to my attention that it's easy to slip up a little on this one within your own family.  We analyze each other's actions and then state our opinions.  And you know what?  It's completely unnecessary.  I've made a strong effort to change this.  I'm trying to only say things that are uplifting statements.  More "I know she'll work this out.  She's an amazing person." and less "I think she needs to...."

For this week I thought it was time to pick something a little less heavy.  This week's challenge is to visit someone elderly.  This is something we've done before, but I always have a great experience when we do this.  There is so much to learn from people who are farther down the road from you.  I think it's so enriching to have friendships with people who are in a different stage of life.  I have a plan to take some children from church to visit a couple of widows.  I think it'll be great.

That's all for this week.  Feel free to share any experiences you had from last week's challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.
