The Basket Lady
Imagine a leisure stroll down any street USA and as you’re walking along a gigantic billboard curiously captures your attention; Needed: People!
You cannot do it on your own. You will need the help of others -- if you want to be successful. And that will require you to connect with others. To do that, follow these suggestions:
Focus on people.
Show others that you care.
Remember everyone’s name.
Walk slowly through the crowd.
The Basket Lady knows beyond a doubt that without the support, generosity, kindness and the connections in the River Valley and beyond, that the mission of get a basket, give a basket wouldn’t be a success without the help of others.
This week alone, Basket Lady received donations from the Stone-Smart Legion in Norway, Post 82, Women’s Auxiliary, The Hope Association, Betty Letalien, Linda French, Barbara Wright, a “secret angel,” Barbara (Bartash) and Jeffrey Leonards.
To The following angels in training, John Kezal, Craig (Mexico VIP), Wayne Sevigny, Cindrie and Becky, Patty Duguay, Carol Emery, Sandra Witas, Dr. Petrona, Lorraine Nadeau ,Hannaford Pharmacy and Shelia Bent:
A very special thank you, and with it, you will find, sincere appreciation, because you are so kind.
Attention students! Class is in session. Sit up straight and tall in your seats, open your books and turn to page 1, chapter 1, Life’s Lessons 101, the ABC’s of Faith:
Knock and the door will be opened to you.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Show someone a kindness today. Better yet, show yourself a kindness.
Remember the theme: Get a basket-Give a basket.
We miss you every day, Dot Sanchas! Until then, smile and live in the present.
