Martin Luther King Jr. Day (also known as Civil Rights day) is observed on the third Monday in January. That happens to be today! One of my favorite quotes by Martin Luther King Jr. is “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” This quote really resonates with me because it asks to look beyond ourselves and look at our fellow humans. It inspires the question of “Can I do more to help my neighbors? My community?”
In my neighborhood lives an elderly woman who is very generous. She regularly picks up mail for those away, makes meals for those in need, bakes goodies to share and babysits children after school. She is amazing and quite the inspiration. She has spent her entire adult life looking beyond herself and her family. This woman is a steward for our community and an excellent role model. Can I say I want to be like her when I grow up? What are different ways you help serve your community?
Before I forget, I have some important announcements to make. Because today is a Federal holiday, the post office is closed. There will be no deliveries today from the post office. UPS is open. They will be making deliveries so you may have a package delivered today by UPS. We are open and working on shipping out all packages shipping via UPS. All USPS packages will ship tomorrow. Cheers!
