Tip Thursday

Our entire country has been talking about CHANGE, change for the better. I've always had the belief that everyone can do something to change the lives of others for the better.

We won't go down in history but how about; give a "Hello," a nod or a smile to everyone you pass. Each month choose a friend or a relative that you haven't spoken with in a long time and give them a telephone call. Bring a baked good or visit an elderly neighbor living alone. Look into volunteer opportunities at your local library, school, sport programs, hospital, church, Boy or Girl Scouts, nursing home, etc. A couple hours a month would have a huge impact and I bet you would have fun doing it! Go to USA Service and find a project near your home. There was even a project in my area listed, could not believe it! Just think about how much better this country would be if everyone did something.

I love how everyone is all happy and optimistic because we have a new president...give it a couple months to wait and see how happy he makes you.

Look at it this way, better to be optimistic and happy than not!

It's not the optimism; it's the idea that this guy has done so much for us just by being sworn in. Give him a chance to do something before putting him on a pedestal. I would hate to be him and have to live up to the expectations.

Actually, he has done a lot by being sworn in because that means Bush is out! I agree, though, that people expect a lot. He has said that it will be tough and take time, but people have had enough and want results. I wouldn't want to be president right now.
