The world is before you and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in.
James A. Baldwin


When you entered this world, everyone was caring for you.  They met all your needs and nurtured you into adulthood. Now you are all grown up.

Take a look around you. Are you keeping the world just like it always has been? Is everything that happens all about you? How someone will  nurture and care for you? Or are you now working to change the world by nurturing and caring for someone else? There is much you can and should do for the loved ones in your life. They should always come first but. . . . .

While changing the world should always begin with your family, it shouldn’t necessarily end there. The homeless shelter downtown could use some help. The single mother on your street could benefit by a helping hand. The nursing home in your neighborhood has many elderly without family to visit them. Take some time outside of focusing on you and yours today and take a look at your community.  What is it that you can do to improve the community in which you live?
