Thoughtful Thursday – Points of Light

lightsI truly believe that each of us is a point of light that can make a difference in someone else’s life. Whether it’s a small donation to a cause in which you believe or giving a little bit of your time to someone else, you can help improve someone’s life.

I try to do that in a variety of ways, like participating in a writing group – www.libertystatesfictionwriters.com – or by brainstorming with a fellow writer. By bringing you new faces to meet or by offering up some goodies for a worthwhile cause, like Brenda Novak’s auction.

Little things, but when lots of people do them, they amount to a big difference and they don’t take a lot of cash, just a small piece of yourself.

So, I leave you with that thought for today – What little thing can you do to help make a difference?

I also want to remind you that you have until midnight EST Friday to leave a comment on my friend Kathye Quick’s blog post for a chance to win a CALLING T-shirt.

  1. I’ve tried over my lifetime to make a
    difference by volunteering in our school
    district, in our parish, and our community.
    Through volunteering, I was nominated for a position on our school board, had two awards named for me (I was the first
    recipient for one of them), and I also represented the district in a national competition. In our parish, I’ve served on just about all the ministries available. I still sing in the choir and serve as a
    lector. All these activities have also
    aided by keeping my “older” brain active!

  2. I try to do my part by volunteering in my church’s thrift store one day a week. I also sit with my friend who’s health isn’t good so her husband can get out. The biggest thing I do is pray for the people on my prayer list each day. I can’t always help financially but I try to make a difference in other ways. You have made a difference in my life by always responding to my posts. You brighten my day. Thanks for all you do. Have a wonderful day and hugs.
