I've had my hands full with a homemade Tiramisu project today, so my Bucket List Tuesday post is going up a little late. However,in between layering coffee drenched ladyfingers, I had some time to consider which of my goals I wanted to discuss. After all, while one's Bucket List may be full of crazy and fun activities or events, it is just as important for mine to contain lifetime goals of a more long term nature. With this week marking the year anniversary of my grandmother, a woman I can only hope to one day emulate with even a fraction of her compassion and heart, and yesterday's jarring events in Boston, #3 (Charity) seemed fitting. I am no Saint; but it physically pains me to watch suffering, to the point I cannot sit through graphic sequences of loss, even in films like Titanic. As strong as these feelings are, I also recognize their value. If one cannot see these things (hunger, illness, strife) with open eyes, than how can one truly appreciate that which they have?Blessings Bags. You don't have to be an individual of faith to understand the meaning behind these aptly titled gallon size Ziplocs, chocked full of life's essentials. You may recall my tale of how they came to be a staple in our car's backseat. Essentially they are an alternative to case and change that offers those in need immediate water, food, and basic sanitation solutions. I give money as well, when I can; but this way I am never caught off guard by an extended hand.
