Volunteering for a Cause

It’s been a busy week – but aren’t they all? I’m the outgoing local hospital auxiliary president and have been working on completing the program of work.

Our auxiliary has had an active year. There have been lots of fund-raisers for the hospital, volunteering at the gift shop, and some travel.

I just came back from an enlightening convention of our Missouri Association of Hospital Auxiliaries (MAHA) at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri. One of the highlights was hearing the talk, “Leaving Your Imprint on the World Through Volunteerism” by JoAnn Contorno, a motivational speaker and author. She is a spirited and dynamic speaker, somewhat like Erma Bombeck. She really pumped us up – and made us laugh – what good medicine that is!

Making a Difference in a Troubled World

PinExt Making a Difference in a Troubled World

Here are questions from one of the stories in the character skills book, Listening to the Mukies and Their mukiesbook Making a Difference in a Troubled WorldCharacter Building Adventures:

Do you think one individual can make a difference and influence a community?

How can rumors create conflict?

What are alternatives to violence and war?

Why do you think the Mukies were able to live without conflicts?

One of the characters in the book expressed the beliefs and hopes of St. Francis of Assisi in his prayer:

My wish is that peace may begin with me.
Where there is hatred, may I create love.
Where there is discord, may I create unity.
Where there is doubt, may I have faith.
Where there is falsehood, may I find truth.
Where there is ignorance, may I find learning.
Where there is despair, may I create hope.
Where there is sadness, may I bring joy.
May I realize that it is not as important to be understood,
as it is to understand,
and to be loved, as it is to love.
May I realize that it is in giving that I receive,
and in pardoning that I am pardoned.

This is adapted from the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

For more of the insights from the Mukies and their character building adventures, go to Amazon here or to our website here.

This book has been highly recommended by parents, teachers, and counselors in bringing out important ways of making a difference in personal lives as well as those of others. Order these books at Amazon here or at our website here.

These books help children share a vision for a better world.

Since we are in mid peach season, here are a few of my favorite “peachy” sayings:

“It’s a peach of a day.”

“Everything’s peachy keen.”

“She has a ‘peaches and cream’ complexion.”

“An apple is an excellent thing — until you have tried a peach.”
George du Maurier (1834-1896)

“Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring and because it has fresh peaches in it.” Thomas Walker.

“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.” Mark Twain.

“In Hollywood, the women are all peaches. It makes one long for an apple occasionally.” William Somerset Maugham.

“The ripest peach is highest on the tree.” James Whitcomb Riley.
