The Needs versus the Wants, the Greedy versus the Needy.

Can you want more than you need? Will the Greedy ever help the Needy?

I am blessed to have a family member which will cook for the holidays. I am blessed to have a home that will welcome people in who don’t have a place to go. Their family may be not be keeping the tradition of getting together for the holidays and opening up their front door to others. My family is large, and we are used to cooking above and beyond, but as long as we have food to give we will.

I also help with the church homeless ministry; I started helping my mother when she was heading the ministry at her church. Whatever she asked my or my family to do for the ministry we would. Everyone one of my brothers and sisters when asked will help if they can, we are in no way rich we just love people. When you grow up in a large family, you know about sharing the work, the food, the clothes. You also know about helping one another and other that you meet along the way.

The Greedy versus the Needy, the wants versus the needs.

We all would have love to have a big house, but to have a roof over your head can mean so much to someone else.

Do you remember the story by Hans Christian Andersen“The Emperor’s New Clothes?

When you are walking around in the top designer clothes,  and living in larger than life expensive home, what are people really seeing?

Remember the Billionaire’s Pledge, who was the Greedy who said,No Way?Like I said I come from a family of givers, we are used to sharing. You don’t have to be a billionaire to care for others, if you are wealthy, is donating a tax write off enough?

I do not consider myself as a great writer, but an avid dreamer, an artist, with a great vision of life. Being a writer is a new career for me, so there are so many things that I have to learn. I love learning things. I also love change and opening myself to new adventures. I have a lot of interests besides for romance, which is the type of book I am writing. I also love motivational and spiritual anything, i.e. angel. The things that help you when times are tough. Just like many I have experiences of good and bad times through life. Most of my life, even young as twelve I worked continuously, my last job, I retired after 25 years. Where I go in the future, who knows? I have Bachelors in Business, AA in Office Procedures, AS in Consumer and Family Studies, Diplomas in Legal and Fashion, among others. My first book that I have completed is a romance novel trilogy of about three sister, Olivia, Samantha and Maxie (Mommy's living dolls). www.ivysmemorymakers.com Keep following me, I have something really special to tell you. I promise you will love it. My goal, "I am going to open up your heart" xoxo
