Can you be bothered today?

August 10th, 2012 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

Am I bothered enough to bother?  My to-do list is long, my job jar is full, the laundry basket is overflowing. I have plenty of reasons not to bother with requests for volunteers or donations or letters to congresspersons. But sometimes the requests touch my heart, especially those wanting help to educate children. Putting a book and a child together is enough to make me bother. Most of the doors to curing the world’s ills are closed to me, but I can at least open the world to a child through a book.  What bothers you?  Are you bothered enough to bother today?

    It bothers me when we walk by others as though they don’t even exist. I know I’m guilty of this sometimes when I become overly preoccupied, but in my better moments I try to be a source of encouragement through a smile or kind word. It’s a small effort that can make a great difference.
