I can’t just think of one contribution to the world or my community. I can think of at least three. I like to crochet. I contribute to the world by crocheting for charity. I like to knit. I contribute to the world by knitting for charity. I also work as Community Health Worker. I contribute to the world by providing care to the elderly.
It needs to be my kids. Modeling the correct character in life, they can pass that on. There’s so many ways I can serve others. I just lost my son two months ago. I have a long way to go. I will get there and I will make a difference.
Creating beauty where I live: inside and especially, creating gardens in every one of the many rental place I have lived in the past 10 years.
Teaching children for the past 40 plus years, with all my energy and affection, my determination for them to succeed, my love for books and nature, and my sense of humor. They have contributed to me in more ways than I probably realize, and I hope that I have contributed to them as well.
Humour. I can raise a smile.
Well, covid had put a dent into assisting those in the greater community who need help, but I offer to tutor folks – usually children, sometimes adults – who cannot read, or struggle with reading, and for my “family community”, I am assisting my mother who can no longer do everything she needs just to survive on her own.
I am a school teacher and I have always strived to not only educate “my” children academically but to help them grow as good citizens, install good values in them, encourage them to care for each other and the world – and, hopefully enable them to feel loved and valued at least while in our care. I am proud of how many of our children go on to be ambassadors, monitors, head girls/boys/school councillors etc at their next school, so, hopefully, I am doing some good!
I don’t do much. I’ve been quite depressed and out of it since all the restrictions and business lockdowns. But i do the best i can to maintain an attitude of helpfulness and try to pitch in whenever i can.
I hope you start feeling better, Deb.
I can tell you that I have enjoyed reading some of your posts very much, and they had meaning for me. You are appreciated!
My sense of humor. My dedication to friendship. How I live into my name and spirit animals. My blessing of doing smudging ceremonies.
Answering questions on UCSB’s Science Line.
I’d like to do something like that.
Dear dcdeb – you can answer questions on Quora – a scientist suggested that to me. It’s fun and useful, and the questions cover all areas, not just science.
Kindness & compassion.
Did you change your picture, Pilgrim, or are you another Pilgrim? 🙂
Yes, dear Pilgrim. It is a precious contribution of yours since I got to know you here. I do think about the needed cure for your hurting hands. May they tenderly and completely be healed. May His Love and Grace and all blessings be with you. For this I pray.
Initiating, co-facilitating and sustaining the “friendly conversation circle” for ESL newcomers to my city.
Prayer, calling the White house for environmental and other issues. Eating vegetarian. Reducing my carbon footprint by walking and not using my car often.
I volunteer to help cats and kittens find their forever homes. 💜
Being a nurse and caring for people
I have tutored many students who have dyslexia. They have progressed not only in reading but in their self esteem. This sets them up to give much to their community.
