This is really a suggestion because I do things for other people that I can do, but they can not afford to hire people to do, and it makes me feel good. Like today, My neighbor works and has a 9 year old, darling daughter, and it is a snow day, so I will watch her today. I enjoy that, and enjoy helping out my friend, a single, hardworking mother. It brings pleasure to both of us. I will mend clothes or make clothes for people who can supply me with the necessities, but don't know how, and can't afford to hire someone else to sew. I will bake home made bread, and always make at least 4 loaves, and give away two. If you are making it anyway, how hard or expensive is it to make a couple more, and how good it makes you feel to give one to a friend in need. So when you can, do something for someone else and see how it feels, then tell us what you did, and how you felt.
