Helpful reminders about why we all count. Even though we sometimes feel like we are not important, we all need help and the gift is in giving.

While many people think they are not seen
there is always someone looking
to borrow a book or light bulb or cook pot
for something they might be cooking.
And at times it seems, that  when helping a  stranger  
 all that we do is giving,
theres no better feeling then knowing inside
that this is a life worth living
We all were made of the same basic stuff
and and i think you know what I’m saying,
if we cant help each other, when things become rough
then we all had better start praying.
In the end we’ll be judge, not on what we have ,
but instead on what we hove done.
So give to a stranger, his life is worth living
because someday you could be that one.
