Who Cares?

I love the gift of life and use it really well.
The more I value what I have, the better care I take.
I value everyone I encounter and give my very best.
Life is for giving and we are the gifts, one to another.

When afraid, hurting or angry, people act like they don’t care.
When people are down on themselves and feel like failures, people pretend they don’t care.
When humanity is sick with depression, obsession and addiction, people behave like they don’t care.
But I do……..

Do You Care?
What do you care about?
Start where you are.
Make something good from what really is good for you.

When everything is quiet in the still of the night, are you there?
When the dawn comes and you can smell the wind, do you care?
When you see the kids playing in the puddle or fountain, do you care?
When you feel like crying or laughing or running free, do dare?

Is there anyone there when the kids come home?
Is there anyone to fix dinner when people are hungry?
Is there anyone there someone to give a hug when you are sad?
Do you know what matters when you feel mad?

Who feeds the homeless?
Who recycles their stuff?
Who darns their socks?
When is it enough?

Are you there for the sick, the needy and lost?
Do you care for you parents, no matter the cost?
Are you lost in your work, your misery and TV?
Do you wonder what happens when you are in need?

Everything works out when we wake up.
We will see what life is really about.
Love one another, both foe and friend.
Care for each other, give kindness and good will.

Remembering to care.
Always loving me and you,
Betty Lue

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.
