Filled with Compassion

The “Follow Four Fill-In” is hosted by Hilary at Feeling Beachie. Each week, she posts statement with blanks. Our mission, should we choose to accept, is to copy the statement and fill in the blanks on our blogs. Then link up to her blog for sharing. Hilary is always looking for co-hosts and more statements for us to fill in. Please visit her, and let her know your suggestions!
The statements & My Answers: #201:
1. Showing compassion  is the best thing that you can do for the world. It should show in everything you do, every day, not just for “special” things. It should be a way of life. If we each took time to always show that we care, we could and wouldmake a difference. Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Act upon feelings of compassion; show that you care. Just do it…always.

2. Do you follow or break routine on the weekends? When Bill is on the road, my days are usually all the same, with little change. Routine is key. There is no “looking forward to the weekend” and no “hump day”. Here, we look forward to Dad being home, whenever that is, because that is what matters

3. Pasta is my very favouritecomfort food. It is even better when shared. We all need to be comforted sometimes, and sharing definitely makes everything better.  

4. Being with critters always makes me happy. There is no pretense with critters. There is no judgment from critters. They have no hidden agenda. Critters are always genuine to their feelings, whatever the situation. I love that about them, and try to give back to them when I can. It is their world, too. This is what rescue and advocacy is all about: I try to be their change, too.

  1. I like your answers to 1 and 4. I don't really have a comfort food, but mashed potatoes and gravy comes close. And I am like you- weekends don't mean anything to me unless my husband is off on those particular days..which he is maybe once a month. My favorite days are when he is here with me. Have a wonderful weekend. Hope the weather isn't too nasty where you are, or where Bill is driving.


  2. Animals are awesome! We have chickens, ducks, dogs, cat…and I think there might be some tropical fish swimming around in my son's aquarium still. We've had hamsters and ferrets too. Animals can add so much to life!


  3. I agree with with #1. We should all be compassionate.
    My weekends are always the same routine, work .
    I would say pasta is my comfort food too but I love an assortment.
    Being with family always make me happy, but I love my critters too.
    Hugs, Sorry I'm late… I got side tracked.


  4. its pretty easy to know where the critters stand…smiles….and compassion should be a way of life…i figure i could be there, you know…and i would hope someone would have that same with me….my son loves pasta…he would eat it every meal if he could…ha


  5. so true what you said about Compassion — and that quote is one of my very favourites: It all does start with each one of us, doing our part!
    Pasta is probably my go-to comfort food too. Although I did have a very good lobster bisque this weekend that I could get quite used to! ha
    Cashew was so happy to see us when hubby and I got back home today. But he did kinda glare at us like “you left me alone with the littles… I am not impressed.” LOL
