#LightTheWorld

#LightTheWorld by Clothing the Naked

Don't you just love the #LightTheWorld initiative? Everyday when I wake up, I think, "How will I participate today?"  Fortunately, it is usually easy to come up with an idea that works into my schedule--it really isn't difficult to give service!

Today's topic--"Jesus Taught Us to Clothe the Naked and You Can Help"--is another one that it is easy to do.  I already have a bag of clothing that has been waiting for me to take to the local Salvation Army.  Today I will get it out the door and to the charity.  

Another way to participate is to knit or crochet hats for babies.  I read about the Little Hats Big Hearts program yesterday.  I'm not sure if I will get hats made before the end of the year (which is the deadline), but I am going to share this idea with my daughter, who loves to crochet.  

We still have some leftover bags for the homeless waiting in our car, too, and those bag have socks in them.  As we are driving around town today, we will pass out more bags if we see people in need.  

Winter is nearly here officially, but has already started weather-wise in much of the US.  How will you help keep people warm?

  1. Infant hats are quickly made from scrap yarn, flannel or fleece baby blankets are quick and easy to make. I remember a lady in the hospital auxiliary who crocheted a simple edge around the flannel gal jets to make them even more special.

    1. When my children were babies, I had some flannel receiving blankets with crocheted edges. The crocheted edges did make them more special. :-)

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Action-Packed Week, but in a Good Way

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
