Believe There Is Good...Be the Good

A few weeks ago, I announced that I wanted to give this vinyl away. I am so glad I thought of it. It has been on my mind so much. All that is says. All that it means. All that it teaches. Teaches me. Teaches my children. Teaches anyone that comes into my home and sees it.

I think of all those LEO's and their families in CA right now that we are praying for as they continue to try and Be the Good out there even when they are in harm's way. I think of my children and what I want them to grow up to be like. I think of Sandy Hook. I think of that quote that has been going around from Mr. Rogers:
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.” — Mister Rogers
(Story and picture from The Washington Post)

And then I happened on this great video tonight on FB, "Give a Little Love". It is exactly how I think of this quote, what I want it to do for people. For me. For my children.

Take a few minutes and watch this little clip. I absolutely love it! I think we might even turn a whole night in our family devoted to all of this.

Or you can find it here on youtube.

I am so thankful for all that DO good in the world. And we all need to keep the perspective to look for that good. It's there. We just need to slow down a little sometimes, to see it, to be it.

Winners of vinyl will be announced on Monday.
Have a great weekend and Be the Good in 2013!
