366 days of gratitude

Winter returned today.

In spite of that two women spent three hours sitting outside a shop on Oamaru’s main street collecting for a Breast Cancer charity.

Even though they were dressed for the cold they can’t have been comfortable but they had a job to do and they were doing it cheerfully.

It’s people like these two, doing something for others , willingly, whatever the weather, that keeps the wheels of civil society turning and oh how I’m grateful for them.
