Luck of the Irish

                It’s the eleventh of March and I just realized that I have not given a theme for the month.  I guess I’ve already touched on March Madness and an Easter basket as a couple of activities that you could work into your life.  But, as an overall theme, I guess I could speak into the “Luck of the Irish.”  How are we lucky?  Employment in this economy is definitely good fortune.  We can consider ourselves lucky to have our health and a roof over our heads.  This month, let’s think about how we can help others that are not so lucky.
                What can we do for the homeless?  We’ve covered that with some helpful suggestions; cooking meals for the shelters, giving food to the food pantries, etc…  What about the unemployed?  Well, if you find yourself not fitting into that suit anymore, you can donate it to an agency that helps out those who are trying to secure employment.  By typing “donate gently used business attire,” into your search engine, you can find a variety of places looking for interview appropriate clothing.  Choose one that suits you.  Finally, as far as health is concerned, you could donate those crutches that you keep tripping over to a local nurse’s closet.  Someone will get use out of it that wouldn’t be able to buy their own crutches and you would remove a hazard from your home, increasing your luck. 
                These are just a few suggestions.  If something pops up this month, I’ll be sure to let you know.  In the meantime, be thankful for your blessings and don’t be afraid to share them.
