Giving Makes a Difference

We've been trying to simplify, especially with material things. So we cleared out our house, room by room. Let me tell you, it was so liberating! We had a huge yard sale on Saturday, hoping to get rid of unnecessary stuff and make some extra cash. 

Unfortunately, it was freezing! Hardly anyone was out of doors, so we made a grand total of $75 bucks. It was so depressing to pile it all back into the house. Later on, we decided to just give it all to Goodwill. So even though we didn't make a lot of money, at least it went to a good cause, and maybe they will be able to get some cash from the sale of it this Christmas. 

Now more than ever, people are in need. I talked to several people this weekend who are suffering because of our economic recession. We're having a hard time ourselves. But I know it's important to give out of our need, so I try to donate whatever I can whenever I can. Maybe it's canned food or clothes, or even fundraising for a good cause.

If we all try to give something, then we CAN make a difference.

I had a joint garage sale this past summer and it poured all day, we made no money either, LOL, so I too, decided to box the stuff up and give some away, the rest still in boxes waiting to be donated, before end of the year!

Happy Coming Thanksgiving!
Lisa!
