Getting Down to Business
Today when I went to the post office to pick up our mail and my own mail, I was overwhelmed by the number of nonprofit organizations sending literature to solicit funding. I wish that I could help them all, but indeed it is a daunting task. We try to do these community projects to help even if it is a small amount. Every little bit adds up.
I can't stress the importance of community enough for all of us today. I honestly believe it is the thing holding our society together, and it is getting more challenging by the day for this to happen. People have incredibly busy lives just trying to survive. Still, whatever efforts we can all make, no matter how small it seems, is a good thing. And I am very glad we have added children to the mix of those we serve as so many of the at programs are cut at schools, and there is very little exposure to art. I am so grateful that I grew up in a time when art and music were considered a very important part of one's education, and every school offered lots of opportunities for both subjects.
It's another very long day starting today and I have to get up very early, so time for this to end. I've done about as much as I can do.
