I need to take a minute to give Wayne's Pizza a pat on the back.
When I walked in the first thing he said was "I cleaned in front for you today." I thanked him and told him what a difference it really makes. And I was thinking as I left, imagine if everyone just cleaned up the front of their property. What a wonderful world it would be.......
I haven't had a chance to take my walk in weeks and I was just telling Ian you'd never know I was ever there. It kills me to see all the litter, but the unfortunate reality is I can't be out there every day. I might not have time to clean the entire neighborhood every day but I can take a minute to clean in front of my apartment.
Some day we won't need to pat people on the back because it will just be the normal expected thing to do......

Since 1991, the Willis Center http://www.williscenter.org/ Shepherd’s Place programs have provided a temporary place to live and a continuum of care and support to families who are homeless. The shelters can accommodate up to thirteen families at one time. Shepherd’s Place offers additional services, from life-skills classes to support in family treatment, substance recovery and job training. These services help families identify solutions to issues, which may have contributed to their homelessness. These vital services help individuals discover effective strategies for growth and healthy living.
I spent the morning with other members of the Junior League of Worcester doing a clean-up at Shepard's Place. It was cold and wet, but what a great day. People may argue, but I think, without a doubt, there's no better feeling than the feeling you get from volunteering and helping others.

Yes, That's an entire row of cars, bumper to bumper. How exactly does that happen?
It's fun walking around my neighborhood. An adventure every day.
Special thanks to the wonderful person who thought it was a good idea to dump all those on the sidewalk. I think I lost a few pounds today, and got quite an ab workout.

It's a bitter sweet sight to see them all lined up outside my apartment. I wish it wasn't necessary.
