One of the best things you can do for yourself is to do something for someone else. There is something about serving others that makes us happier with life.

Welcome a new neighbor with a plate of cookies, donate some time at a homeless shelter, visit an elderly neighbor, befriend a lonely child. “In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me” whether you are Christian or not, living the golden rule is a key to a well lived life.

I’m sure a lot of you had or have Parents like I did. Growing up in the 1920’s and ’30’s like they did, service was expected of everyone in the community, and kids were taught at a early age to not only work, but to be good neighbors too.

I don’t think my Father could have heard a better compliment of one of his seven children than “your kids know how to work” I think that said as much about him as us. Early in his life my Dad owned a full service Dairy. He milked the herd, pasteurized the milk and then delivered It.  Because of the nature of such a profession he worked for seven years straight, without a single day off!

My folks grew up during the depression, as a child I was expected to “finish my plate” and “turn off the lights” my older brother jokes that Dad may have invented copper wire because he could stretch a penny so far. My Mom wasn’t going to be outdone, she bought the “special today” meat, and once tried to pass off sour milk, concealed, as it was, as chocolate. (Failed miserably)  Overall though, I had great parents and have been richly blessed by the lessons and values they instilled in me.
