Life is Good in more ways than one!

I always think and say this out loud, “We are very fortunate to live where we do and to have what we have. Many people would consider our  life style that of royalty. ”  My children just roll their eyes at me because they don’t understand what I’m trying to convey to them, yet.  They are shielded from all the horrors of the world, the sadness, sickness and devastation that comes from living in conditions unfit for any human being.  Recent events in our banking and real estate industries have forced us, Americans to be plagued with poverty, homelessness and sickness as well.

Our family members, friends, neighbors and fellow citizens are loosing their jobs, their homes, their health insurance and life savings because of the condition of our economy!  This scares me and motivates me to help, in a small way, but help none the less.   So when I read an article in the local newspaper that stated how one of our local community events was going to help local families struggling to survive, I was thrilled!

The event was called “The Pumpkin Fest” and the event was being coordinated by a company called Life is Good .  The festival had many activities and games but what mattered to me was simple.  Every time someone tossed a disc, they would be helping a disadvantaged family in Tampa toss their problems away.  Every time someone carved a pumpkin they would be helping a single mom or dad start a new life.  How exciting that you could go out and enjoy a nice family evening playing games with your children and carving pumpkins, knowing that in your enjoyment, you were bringing a new hope to families in need, a mom and dad struggling to provide for their children.  That is Sweet to me!

So, when I saw these beautiful rows of  Carved Pumpkins I was overwhelmed with joy for all the families that these pumpkins represented! What a night!  A wonderful time was had by all while contributing to a great cause!  And I really did appreciate all the talent that was on display that night!

Have you been visited by  Life is Good lately?? Contributing made my family feel good, even if it was in a small way.  Share your contributions with me, I’m excited to hear what everyone is doing to help in their own way!
