Winter finally breathes her cold beautiful breath down my spine. I can relax, all is well with the world, my world… As April dies slowly an May reaches from the womb of this year I feel the changes in the weather all around me. This is hot meal season, Pannekoeke and soup, curries and stews and warm puddings to keep the cold at bay. It is a season to appreciate blankets more and those cozy feelings when you wake up underneath a warm blanket after a cold night and feel as if you could stay in that bed all day…
But not all have those luxuries. Somewhere people are living in cars or under a blanket of newspapers. Somewhere somebody cannot eat winter food and live on handouts or trashcans. Somewhere someone’s world is a cold pit of despair….
We should always be thankful that we have it better and when we find those less fortunate than us, try to help them, even if it is just a cup of coffee or an old blanket.
We are needed.
We can give.
We can make someone’s world a little better.
Let’s do it.
Blessings to all,
