I read this today and it went straight to my heart. Thank you Jasmine Star!

We all have our own unique abilities. Don't focus on what others can do, but, rather, what you can do to make yourself better. You taught yourself photography, and you're getting better each day...don't envy his work. Appreciate his work. And appreciate yours.

And there it was. The Truth. Simple appreciation of other work that inspires me to get better...and appreciation of how far I've come. Flaws and all.

CLEANING FOR A REASON

Cleaning for a Reason

If you know of any woman currently undergoing chemo, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning - 1 time per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. 'Cleaning for a Reason' will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service.
Please pass this information on to people who know of any women going through any type of cancer treatment. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women.. So pass the word and let them know that there are people out there who care.
