Three ways I help other people:
I’m paraphrasing Glenn Beck on the first two:
1) To enlighten (teach)
2) To entertain (amuse)
3) The closest people to me in my life have all done social work in some capacity. I, like my mom, do it on a free-lance basis. I can understand from trying to help people why so many get discouraged with the work.

  1. Congratulation on your award and thank you for nominating my blog. And blessings for your good deeds.
    My sweetie and I made a multi-course Christmas turkey dinner along with a few gifts for 12 to 18 elderly shut-ins. We did this for nine years, delivering on the day before Christmas. Would you believe a sister-in-law found out about this around our fourth year and got angry? During Christmas dinner at mom-in-laws she screamed that we were nothing but a couple of yuppie do-gooders. To this day I still don’t know why she was so offended. Our acts did not take away from her or her family in any way. My sweetie and I wanted to get sweatshirts that had ‘Yuppie Do-Gooder’ emblazoned across the front, but knew it would only stir up trouble.
