Compassion in Action


Tuesday, February 28, 2017


Jane’s Day of Service – a day spent doing what YOU feel will bring more peace, more harmony, more happiness to your corner of the world. You might read to the visually impaired, or take your neighbor’s trash can to the curb, or write a thank you note to someone you’ve been impacted by recently. Or you might take some breakfast cereal or cans of beef stew to a food pantry, or give flowers to a stranger waiting for a bus … whatever moves you, whatever matters to you. That’s the thing to do.


You and me and everyone we know. This day offers everyone an opportunity to realize that alone or with friends -each and every one of us can make a substantial difference in the life experience of another person. We do have choices. Even if we might not be able to change the world – we can definitely brighten one corner of the universe we know best.


Because the world needs people to show up, to love and care for one another actively – and to find positive outlets for worry and frustration instead of bemoaning the truth that ‘somebody ought to do something about that’. Yes – someone should – and that someone is me and you. No matter how small the act – it’s the action, the choice to DO that makes all the difference.


To honor and remember my beloved mother
