Every single day when I start my day I say out loud that I want to help others this day. Every day I do that whether it be with a smile, a joke, a handshake, a good word to lift some one, a favor perhaps small, perhaps large. I take this as not only a responsibility but part of citizenship and being “Christian” like. As a result of this mostly I am rewarded many times over as my life is full, rewarding, and very happy. But sometimes people you help are ungrateful, non reciprocal, or just don’t make the same a priority in their lives. Discouraging for a brief moment but then I remember that’s why they are who they are. Poor souls.
