    In life’s journey I have discovered that caring and showing your love to others is very important. Not just caring for the ones that love you but caring about the ones that hate you as well. When showing that love for the fellow man I believe we need to be careful NOT to forget the ones that are most precious to us. It is easy to get caught up in doing good things for others and forget the ones that are in your family and our close friends. If we schedule ourselves out so tightly that we have no time for our family then we are doomed to fail both tasks.

    I would suggest to do good… help others… feed the hungry… show someone you care…but don’t forget that the ones in your home need your love as well.

  2. You are so right! I think sometimes we think our family and other loved ones just KNOW we love them, and by doing good things for them is a way to show it. . .you have to say it too.
