219 - Wednesday 6th August

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
- Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948), Indian political and spiritual leader


I always give to charity as long as I believe in the charity. I always give to Comic Relief and Children in Need. I can’t say that I have ever done lots of fund raising but will always sponsor anyone who puts themselves out to raise money. I think it takes a special kind of person who carries out a new challenge in the aid of others less fortunate – especially if it is a really hard challenge such as running the marathon or something. My friend’s husband to be has just cycled from John o’Groats to Lands End for a local cancer hospice. James and I both sponsored him very generously as it took alot of training and 2 weeks of his own time to complete.
This photo is not related to the prompt. It has seeded itself from the seeds from the bird table. Now that is what I call recycling!!!
