I am overwhelmed by generosity and gratitude this morning on so many levels. Thank you to everyone who supports our humanitarian programs at Color My World . There are too many people to mention but you know who you are!
I woke up to a “surprise” charitable donation this morning! I am feeling so humbled by generous families not only in my town but around the country! I have shared this quote before but it has become my mantra! Thank You!
Here is what I wrote to the donor after receiving the news- “I just went to bed last night with the thought of “How are we going to come up with money for Nicaragua for the solar cooking project for August?” (When I am gone to Asia for a chunk of the summer.)
We have had an outpouring for OK with kits and I just felt that it would be hard to reach out to the world again. You are an answer to silent prayers!”
I am reminded of the greatness of reaching out when I think of people like Ghandi.
Here is a little quote he said that I love-
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or act of kindness I can show to any human being let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” -Mahatma Ghandi.
As we pace ourselves through the many things that we could be doing, or feel guilty that we are not doing it is hard to narrow down what we should be doing and then perhaps we do nothing.
I want to remind us all-
Our Motto at Color My World is “Search Inward, Look Upward, Reach Outward”! My day has started with a smile on my face because of generosity in the world….what a way to start!
