“Be thankful for what you have, but never take what you have for granted. Share with those who are less fortunate. You do not know what tomorrow brings” (Catherine Pulsifer)
My entries for this week’s photo challenge are products of the Eleemosynary Climb (5.16.10) I and some of my hiking buddies conducted for the genuinely kind people of the scenic Mount Timbak almost two years ago, and it has something to do with the quotes festooned at the beginning and end of this post.
There’s no better way to repay the blessings we have than to give something out for the less fortunate ones. Being a part of that special climb is already a fulfillment more so when you see the happy FACES of these children upon receiving our little help — in the form of a school supplies set.
Only a stolen shot can capture that authentic emotion I am looking for, especially in subjects like this.
The doll-like face of this child is definitely a charm to my eyes.
No matter how distracting the faces of other kids are on this photo, the striking smile of that boy instantly erases those distractions.
This picture made me discover that I, indeed, have two hands. One is for helping myself and the other is for helping others.
“Seek something outside your nine-to-five job as an additional source of fulfillment and as a way to feel the joy of helping others.” Harold Kushner
