Allow Today To Be That Day

Reminds me of Buddhist monk carrying the woman across the river. Great post. We carry so much junk around with us.

Do you carry yesterday into today? I believe one main reason we have difficult, damaged relationships is because we carry the past into the present. Instead of approaching someone with today, we approach them with our feelings and thoughts from yesterday, last week, last year or another time that doesn’t serve any of us well at all.

Here’s an example. Yesterday, I told Chase to go straight to biology and put his vocabulary words in his backpack so he could study for his test. When I picked him up at the end of the day, he didn’t have the list. I approached him with the angry expectation that he wouldn’t have it and our interaction yesterday fell short of being something positive. Was that fair to him?

I am blessed to work with other like-minded individuals who seek a life filled with helping others and making even the smallest difference in someone’s life. Though I am a full-time wish granter, I wanted to do something else, something more, before I turned 30.

Millions of children around the world grow hungrier every day. And the United States is no different.

According to the Department of Agriculture (USDA), 15.8 million children under the age of 18 live in households across the 50 states where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life.

So when we discovered a great grandmother from Washington state who is trying to lower those numbers, we just had to share her story.

Great Grandmother Drives Across Her County To Help Feed 200 Children - Daily!

Phyllis Shaughnessy lives in the Gray’s Harbor school district, which is a run-down town with low income families and no available work nearby for the people who desperately need it. And the children are the ones who end up suffering the most.

During the school year, the township’s children are fed through the school’s lunch program. But when summer arrives, that lunch aid comes to a grinding halt.

So when Shaughnessy learned…
