dear ms b-do for others


ms b theres a verse called do unto others as they do unto you
i ms b dont like that one

i would change it to
do for others as you would like them to do for you

all religions no matter which would you chose
seem to have all these sayings
im sure they all have some version of the
do for others

now ms b
this lady contacted me yesterday
about doing an interview about all my volunteer activities
for an article in their paper
they plan a monthly article on different people each month

now ms b
im not some super volunteer person
there are those who do more much more than i do

what i did ms b
was took those things i have a passion about
wanted to be involved in
narrowed it down to just a few
went for it
volunteering as much as i have time to do

i do habitat for humanity for williamson county
i plan the landscapes and also help with the builds when
im not working on the yard
i guess president carters  involvement with habitat for humanity
sparked my interest
he is a definite do for others type of guy
i want to be like him

when he dies we will talk alot about him and his doing for others
i want people to talk like that about me when my days are done
he did for others
put that on my tombstone will you
he made a difference
i like that one

those homeowners shed lots of tears of joy when they get their houses
they earn it they deserve it they give back they appreciate it

i do meals on wheels
running a route near where we leave
maybe one day you can ride with me
those old folks love to see kids
heck we would probably be the only folks they see that day
the food is fresh cooked and quite nutritious

thats another do for others they i get a lot from doing
an inside me payback
ms b
it just feels good inside real deep it is

i like to help others do organic gardening
just this week i went to someones house to help them figure
out why their garden wouldnt grow
more on that tomorrow
quickly i figured it out
they were most appreciative
all that knowledge i gained over the years gardening
i let them have the part they needed in just a few minutes

they will reap the rewards for months to come
i am helping some with a school garden
giving some peripheral advice
knowing how much those kiddos love to dig in the dirt

ms b
dont worry
ill do for you letting you get your little digits all dirty in my garden
heck you can eat all the dirt you want
i wont tell

i guess the thing i get the best high from
the best satisfaction from
talking about alzheimers
helping raising funds

heck ms b
i figured this weekend that of the walks we are involved in
this year around here for alzheimers
we as a group will raise over a half a million dollars
thats a lot of research and educational services that will be funded
it is all worth it all those hours and effort

then ms b
i guess the part i like the best of my alzheimers involvement
is when i stand up and do my talks
tell my story
answer the audiences questions
they cry i  cry we all cry
at the end of  the day
i feel good when i do this
they feel good that they got some answers

ms b
i hope when you can read and understand this
we have found an answer for this dreadful disease

so ms b
i would like to encourage you to do for others
it would make you a much better person
start young and do it all your life

thats my new motto my new mantra
for others to do

do for others as you would like them to do for you

the organicgreen doctor
