This quote reminds me of my most recent activity ...

Two weeks ago , I met a young mother at the train station who needed help. In-front of me , I could see that it was going to take a lot to help her. I had a hundred questions as to why she was in this predicament, but something inside of me said "you can do it " So I helped the young lady who had a 4 weeks old baby , a barely one year boy and a 3 year old girl . 

The temperature outside was past freezing so it was not easy for her to handle all three kids.
During the ride , I found out she was homeless and needed a shelter for the night. Long story short , I found a homeless shelter for her that will take women and children and the rest is history - they are now my new found family.  

Which brings me to this quote:

“Every time you do a good deed you shine the light a little farther into the dark. And the thing is, when you're gone that light is going to keep shining on, pushing the shadows back.” 
Charles de Lint

“If you do good, your good deeds will multiple. If you do bad, you will face the consequences.
 Always choose the former; it is more blessed to live a good life.” 

To my FOADAC friends and family,
Please pray for me and my new family that they can find long term housing and settle down a bit for the sake of the kids. 

Blessings to you and yours

Reminders we need along the way !

“...we should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the Pharaohs. Only instead of being made out of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you. That's why your deeds are like your monuments, built with memories instead of with stone.” 
R.J. Palacio
