My virtue is known on the streets, in non-profits, in schools, in support groups, in my city and my neighborhood, to my friends, to my family, to my neighbors, to my clients and their employees, and to strangers — strangers I’ve helped in person and others who will never see my face or hear my voice but may read my words or benefit from my behind the scenes contributions. I don’t do enough because we can never do enough. We can only hope to do enough to make a difference, even if just for one person. That has always been my mission and what I teach my grandchildren:

Try to help as much as possible and as many as possible but know that even helping one is an accomplishment for you and a blessing for that one.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
