Random thoughts about the state of our world...

We spend millions of dollars on horrible, nasty political campaigns, but can't provide basic healthcare to all who live in our great nation...

 We  spend hours on technological devices, but can't take the few seconds it requires to say please and thank you to the clerk that cashes us out at the grocery store or the young woman who makes us a cup of coffee...

We spend energy hollering at the guy who cut us off on the highway, but are too tired to sing a song or read a book with our child...

We spend our financial resources on "junk" and then make excuses when we get a phone call asking for support from a charity doing GOOD things in the world...

This November, I'm going to try to say good things about others and to others, turn off my computer and phone more often, remember my P's and Q's (as my mom would call manners!), maybe send a thank you note to someone just because, smile, take a deep breathe and wave when someone cuts me off, read a book, sing a song...

I'm going to THINK about how I use all of my "resources" and make sure that the choices I make are good for me, my family, and the world..  I think I'll start with a song...
