Blizzard Binge

Everyone’s scrambling

To stock their cupboard shelves

Enough to feed themselves

Once the snow hits

Packing their bags with treats

Like cookies, beer, candy

Rreal food would be dandy

Milk bread and eggs

The problem is you see

Everyone buys so much

Stuff they might never touch

To feel secure

Your Type

People are different

Some listen rather well

Others babble like hell

Which one are you

who am I

Behind the façade

Thoughts scatter like pick up sticks

Behind the façade

Voices asking me questions

That I’m answering out loud

Behind the façade

Is where I’m living today

Not completely there

Conversations can’t reach me

Behind the façade

I know you cannot see me

And I don’t know you, do I?

foot loose

Some people are like

The shoes missing their laces

You can’t tie them down

Be An Angel Day

It’s HERE!  The day when each and everyone of us can BE AN ANGEL!!  Pretty cool huh?


Back in 1993, Jayne Howard Feldman wanted to encourage people to be NICE to each other, to suggest that we take the time do help make someone’s life a little easier. Her means to that end was to create Be An Angel Day. Thanks, in part, to the power of social media, the idea grew into a movement and it continues to move forward 23 years later.

So, what can YOU do to participate…  Mow someone’s lawn, hold open a door, wash all the vehicles in the family driveway, cook more than enough dinner and take some over to the senior citizen next door and eat it with them.  Listen to a conversation for no other reason than to be present. Put extra coins into parking meters. Clean your mother’s house. Take the baby for a day and give the parents a break. Walk the neighbor’s dog.

Of course the purpose of mentioning things you could do is to prime the pump of your imagination. You’ll figure this out and spread your beautiful Angel wings everywhere you are today.  Oh and I suppose you have guessed by now, that being an Angel really doesn’t require a special day. What makes Be An Angel Day special, is what you DO. Simply to show the world, the Angel that you are, everyday and everyday will become Angel Day!

Embrace generosity!!
