Helping People Help Themselves

"I feel that I can do anything." I was touched by the joy she finds in simple things I take for granted, or even dislike (laundry). I'm going to do better.

What a lovely, lovely story. It makes me feel so good to see all the good works our church performs every day. And I love the inspirational people who deserve these good works - so simple in their wants, and so happy for the miracle of receiving them. I would love to be able to help people in that way. Maybe one day I'll be able to go on a mission to a place like that! Thanks for the upper!

Well- that stopped my complaining today pretty quickly. Thanks for posting it- it was a good reminder. Sometimes I forget just how good I have it.
