“The Little Red Hen”, a new perspective

I am often in awe of how much work others do to make our lives better. I am not thinking just about friends and family and the love, wisdom, support and gifts they share, but rather the thousands, maybe millions, of folks whose daily jobs somehow impact our lives.

thelittleredhenRemember the story of The Little Red Hen? It was about a group of barnyard friends who didn’t want to help The Little Red Hen plant the seeds, to grow the wheat, to take it to the mill, to make the flour, to bake the bread. But in real life there are hundreds of thousands of people working to plant the seeds, to grow the wheat, to take it to the mill, to make the flour, to bake the bread!

There are millions of people here and all over the world working each day to make our lives better in some way.  And, most likely you are too.

So, thank you for doing what you do, because somehow, in someway you are making my life and the lives of thousands, maybe millions, of other people’s better, too.

Our connections are deeper than we think, more important than we recognize and much more helpful than we realize.
