Because pics of cats always make me feel better.

Today, I am filled with the sense that I can do better. I can do more for other people. I can be nicer and more thoughtful. I can care well for others if I just try a little harder.

This morning before I went to work, I read an article in the paper about a young, newly married couple in Omaha that was adopting a 14-year-old girl that was abandoned when the safe haven law was in place. The girl has had a rough life. From her childhood, to the foster home, and more. Her new parents are my age, 26 & 27.

Today in our staff meeting, my supervisor gave a devotional that focused on carrying others burdens. With this he gave us all a coin that he had collected from a place that he has traveled during his time in the service. He wanted to let us know that he is committed to us, and he wants us to succeed. He is always so selfless and kind.

What am I doing to make this world a better place? How can I make a difference? What can I do to support others and make their lives a little easier?

I was just having a rough day... I think that if I just make the extra effort I can make not only my day but someone else's day better too. Just something to think about...


  1. Even when you have had a rough day you end your blog on a positive note. So I think you are already doing something to comfort others.

  2. What a great post Ashley. You are such a kind person and we are all so lucky to have you in our lives.
