"Even it it's alittle thing, do something for those who need help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it." - Albert Schweitzer
There are countless, countless ways to help people. The list is endless.
I try to help anyone I can, however, I like the young people and the elderly people for the following reasons. With the young person, I think you can influence a lesson of 'paying it forward' that may carry through their years. And it's my heart-felt thank-you to the older person.
Giving does not always mean in the monetary sense. It can be as simple as a smile to someone who looks like they desperately need it. In today's times, I've noticed many people not smiling much at all. It is so important to one's soul.
Giving of one's self can be done in a multitude of ways: helping, teaching, sharing, giving - the list is endless. I believe it is a vital duty to the strength of a society.
And in honor of my Father, I am going to share something he said to me in a dream a while back. He spoke just a few words (I knew it was his voice) "keep giving to people".
That was it - plain and simple. I hope you give of yourself. It may seem small to you, but it could mean so much to someone else.
