‘Showing a Little Love’ Challenge. . .Day 7 & Valentine Features

Well my friends, we are half way through our ‘showing a little love’ challenge.  Let me say that I have so enjoyed those of you who have joined in and shared with me the different ways that you have met your challenge.

It’s not too late to join now!  Even if you only do 1 or 2 of the challenges it will open your heart to showing love to others.

Today’s challenge:  Lend a helping hand to someone in need.

My sweet sis, Jeanne is in an awful mess.  The ceilings in her home started to sag.  Her heating is in her ceiling and they think that is why.  Last week it actually cracked and started to fall down in one area.  She called the insurance.  All of her ceilings are full of asbestos and must come down.  Everything must be removed from the upstairs of her home.  Boy does she have her work cut out for her! 

I will be going over to help her box up.  Now, would I have done this without this challenge?  Absolutely not!  lol!  Just kidding, of course I would.  But still, helps me pay attention to going the extra mile.

Today’s Valentine features from recent Share Your Cup links.

Wow all the valetine things are so cute. Please, please take this to heart...I will tell you wear a face mask, cover your hair and shoes . Asbestos is a very scary thing. The actual pieces seen ina microscope have a hook on them. they anchor into tissue and lungs causing cancer. I have heard that if you threw a handful of asbetos into the air on Friday, it would still be in the air on Monday.xo,Susie
