So, the warm weather is upon us and where I live we are currently in the midst of a heat wave. So, warmth abounds and life is good.
Yet, Fall is coming, with winter not far behind it. So, it is safe to say that colder days are on the horizon, or rather just over the horizon.
While I am mindful of that, that is not the future that I am focussed on. I am ever focussed on the future that sees me driving onto my (our) land for the first time.
I am focussed on that dream of having that land, establishing that homestead and making it a home. A welcoming home for those who need it and wish to call it home.
I am not naive, and know that there will be people who will wish to and try to take advantage of my (our) generosity.
Yet such people will be found out by their: words, deeds and actions and will dealt with accordingly (banishment).
The fear of being taken advantage of is no reason to not try to help other people. We have all had our good graces and generosity taken advantage of.
Yet if we still continue to give and help others, that is a victory, if a small one, over the darkness that wishes to permeate and cover humanity.
We must band together and help one another as we move forward to build a better future for ourselves, our children and humanity itself.
I am doing what I am doing now, and enduring what I must in the present, so I can in some small way try to build that better future.
I am cheap now so I can be generous in the future.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
