Hello. This is the sharing post for Week Three: Mending Neighborhoods and Communities.
What does that mean?
That means if you choose to participate in this challenge (any time during the month of July) you can come back to this post and share what you did to help mend your home and family.
Simply leave a comment and share.
My friends…you are the light.
Sewing masks for people you’ll never meet…donating time, money, or goods to charities around the country and globe….leaving positive comments and beautiful thoughts on social media…every spark counts.
And I notice. I can feel it.
The world can seem dark, especially as of late, and it can seem over powering when you feel like your light is so very small….but look around and through the darkness you will see other flickers and sparks and even flames out there. The light is out there…everywhere…just like the stars in the heavens. We only need to look for it.
Light will always conquer the darkness. Every time. So light it up. Together we can make the world a brighter place…one spark at time.
I’m going to sign off today with a quote that I have hanging in my sewing room from a Rachel Platten song:
“I might only have one match…but I can make an explosion.”
And then a few other quotes that I love:
“Empathy has no script. There is no right or wrong way to do it. It’s simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of ‘you’re not alone.'”-Brene Brown
“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”-Jane Goodall
“And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make” -John Lennon/Paul McCartney
“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
I’m excited to read about the good you are doing and the light you are sharing with others. Don’t be shy…leave a comment telling us about what you have done or are doing to help mend those you have never met…sharing your light helps all of us to see better.
