Letters to God....

Wow. what a great movie and one that brought tears for reasons I was not expecting.  Here is a boy that in the midst of fighting for his life is writing letters to God praying for his loved ones, neighbor, school mates, family, neighbors..not himself but others! 

Did you see it yet?  I hope you will be open to renting it or even buying it this week.

It is about a yong boy who is battling cancer which affects so many of us, directly and indirectly.  It is about his life and being God's warrior selected by God to share His love.  He writes letters to God about how he is feeling or asking God to make someone else's life better and there isnt anyone that isn't touched by his presence.  

It's a good one, let me know what you think if you decide to watch it.

Thursday was interesting and good.  I made a call to a retirement center here in our local area.  I took Demi with me and after calling on this facility for business on Monday decided to go back today to visit my cousin's wife grandmother whom we haven't seen in a while.  Today was bingo day.  I found it interesting that we were hoping to bless someone else's day with a surprise visit only to be blessed by going and visiting with several of the residents.  Demi had a blast playing bingo with about 20 seniors.  I think it is so important for kids to give back to their communities and today was one of those days.  Most of the kids that go to schools now are being taught that is important to care about their communities and to volunteer so many hours.  I love that so many of them get credit for doing so.  Anyway Demi loved it and we are going to try to make this a weekly thing.  One hour a week is all it takes to bring a little joy to someone else and who knows maybe you feel better for just being there.  JUST DO IT...maybe it is not a retirement home but an orphanage.  Maybe it is tuturing your neighbors kids who you know are home alone while their parents are at work.  Where can you make a difference or lend a hand today or this weekend?     

So make it a great today and enjoy your Friday!  Remember to make a difference in those you encounter and let those you love know it.  Hug your kids and tell them how much they mean to you.  DARE TO CHANGE the life of one person who crosses your path today <3
