The Basket Lady
The big red truck was busy this week as there were many people wanting to help others with donations of baby items and holiday decor.
When we practice random acts of kindness it has a positive effect that can change lives and communities. Anyone can participate and it does not have to cost money. Start small and think big. One smile can lift a spirit, one connection can start many friendships, one seed can feed multitudes, one act of kindness can change lives and one person can make a difference.
The Rumford Falls Times is full of people doing good deeds and enjoying what the River Valley has to offer. There are dinners and dances, canoe paddles and heart walks for anyone wishing to participate. Being bored with nothing to do is not the norm in this community. Be sure to read about the many events coming up where people can connect and make a difference.
There is a Native American saying; “Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.” We are blessed in this community to have so many individuals providing random acts of kindness and playing it forward.

Remember the theme: Get a basket-give a basket. Please keep the universal flow of giving and receiving alive and thriving for everyone. Kindness not only counts but it adds up!
We miss you every day, Dot Sanchas! Until then, smile and live in the present.
