In recollecting about my daily battle and frustrations with COPD/Asthma I was rummaging through some stuff (and I have lots of stuff) and I ran across a collection of writings I had from Helen Steiner Rice which are touching, thoughtful and reminders of what we should be doing and not so much what we should not be doing.
What better way to share than with words of hope and renewal as we fight this unrelenting and frustrating illness of COPD/Asthma.
So here you have:
A DAILY THOUGHT, SPIRITUAL WORD & HOPE FOR TODAY!!
THE THOUGHT – from Helen Steiner Rice:
Is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
Who takes the time to be kind.
THE SPIRITUAL WORD:
He who oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is kind to the needy honors him. (Proverbs 14:31)
THE HOPE – for today may we take the time to befriend a co-worker or a neighbor. Or maybe we can volunteer to drive an elderly or disabled person for a medical appointment or offer to cook a meal for an individual who just returned home from the hospital. To be kind to the needy and understand the positive feeling that comes from within.
