Just Because You’re You


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE YOU

     One young man of limited ability loved to cook. Several times, through our Children’s Trust Fund supported Family Support Program, we chose four to six community residents at random from the telephone book, and he cooked an evening meal for them. The food was given not because someone was in need, but because, regardless of circumstances, each person/family is special. They are children of God.

     An undated article headline requested that people Write a loving letter to an incredible kid. This was in response to the Absolutely Incredible Kid Day on March 20th that year. The loving letter drive was sponsored by Camp Fire Boys and Girls.

     …extensive research…indicates a written message letting kids know they’re important, loved and appreciated can make a lasting impact on their life…A letter can be left on a child’s pillow, stuck in a lunch box, e-mailed, mailed, read over the phone or read in person…

     In reviewing both projects, might I suggest that we each write one letter, note, or do a simple something for one person each month. One person picked at random. Not for anything that person did. Not because that person deserves it.

     Do it to celebrate who they are.

     And let me know what you’ve done.  You can type your statement in the comment box below.
