Thoughts - August 7, 2016

"Granma said when you come on something good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right.”
― Forrest Carter, The Education of Little Tree
I was in a small weekly writing group when I lived in Vermont. We decided to read this book and write on a couple of the wise sayings in it....we wrote on it for months! One of my all-time favorite books. It seems we all need a little "good" to come our way today. It can be as simple as a big smile, sharing ears of corn, listening to a friend's woes, giving a ride, an extra scratch on the pet's favorite spot, a kind word to the clerk at the store (or the customer on the other side of the counter), acknowledging a child, loaning a shoulder for someone's tears. It is fun to think of ways to spread the good, the joy. Now it's time to do it! - Beth Almond Ford
