Sometimes we need a little perspective. For example, I am going to wear this white strapless dress that has pockets, duh, because it's fancy and it has pockets. And for example, there is absolutely no way that I can know ahead of time whether I will meet a babe -- but I know for a fact I will see several dear friends.
Perspective can come in many forms. Here is one:
The free clinic I volunteer at in Kensington, one of my all-time favorite projects, has listed the supplies we most need at this time. And yeah, soap is on that list. Bam perspective. Let me know if you have things to donate; I try to run things up there quarterly.
Hotel sized soap, shampoo and lotion.
Large bottles of shampoo
Generic multivitamins (one a day)
Vitamin C 500 mg
Ibuprofen 200 mg.
Over the counter reading glasses
Snack sized ziploc baggies
and as always: prayers and volunteer dentists
