Doing a good thing is enough consolation

EXPERIENCES in our lives aren't all rosy. Negative ones especially should make us better, not bitter persons. We must do all means to turn pain as motivational guide to render good acts to others. Doing things for others who are in need is rewarding. The inner happiness one feels in his heart after doing a good deed is enough consolation.





Learn a lesson from 'the Sunshine Lady'

Let's learn an unforgettable lesson from "The Sunshine Lady" Bianka Rothschild who lived in San Diego, California in a 182- family condominium complex. When someone in the complex is ill, Rothschild never let a minute go by without sending a cherry get-well card simply signed: "The Sunshine Lady".

The reason for her sending cards

Questioned why she bothered herself sending cards to so many people, she replied: "I was born in Poland where I got lots of love and affection from my mother, father and 40 other family members. I was looking forward to my sweet 16 birthday party when the war broke out in 1939. The Germans marched into our home and told us to leave- just like that. There was no party. No gifts. No cards. Only death".

In Warsaw ghetto

Rothschild's family and clan found themselves in the Warsaw ghetto and one by one they died. By 1945 only she was alive. Then she was transferred to a concentration camp where she smuggled with her a small prayer book.

Give love

One night she happened to read these life-transforming words: "We have a right to the joy of giving so others may receive. We can give material things; we can give moral support; we can give a friendly ear and best of all, we can give love.".

Rothschild promise

That night Rothschild promised God that she would give of herself in a true and loving spirit if she survived her terrible ordeal.

" When I settled down here", she says, "I found a way to live up to that promise. In a complex with 182 families- you have lots of nice people who sometimes need a ray of sunshine".

Opportunities for help is limitless

Bear in mind that opportunities for offering help is limitless. It may be a stranger who has lost his way; a grieving woman who lost a son at mid-sea or a friend was abandoned by her lover. Answer calls for help within your means for God will reward you with boundless joys and happiness. (Health and Home)

Don’t miss the weekly fan fic soap opera at flokbinerlaots.wordpress.com! I wrote a series of books with the idea that vampires and their lifestyle is nearly identical to bachelors and bachelorettes who use, abuse, and leave people heartbroken, depressed, and nearly lifeless. I took that thought further with the idea that since I have a B.S. in biology and know there is no natural way for vampires to exist, perhaps the first vampire was an angel who had gone mad and made a deal with the devil. In which case, God would give them an out similar to the one he have Lot with Sodom and Gomorrah. Then BAM! Six two hundred and something page long books were there. I work in healthcare and see how graceful and sometimes sad it is to be afflicted with diabetes which is why I like this blog. It gives a sense of community and support.Thank you so much for the invite.
