Courage to Care!

I don't believe it's an international day or anything, but today in Norway you are asked to have the courage to care! Just take a few minutes out of your busy day to do something for someone you do or do not know. Sometimes it's easier to just go on with your life - but once in a while have to courage to do a little extra!

Pick up the phone and call an older relative you know feel lonely from time to time. Make a batch of cookies and go give them to a neighbour you know have been sick lately. Call a local shelter and ask if they could have use for some of your spoilt cat/dogs excess toys/blankets/collars. Give someone a hug or a compliment. It's not meant to be difficult! Just make someones day a little special (and yours will be, too)!

Hey! Buddy - were you lonely there for a second? Let's play!

Big cyberhugs,
Ane & the furry boys.

We think having the courage to care is a great idea. It's small things that really make a difference, we think:) And you two look so sweet in the last photo!:)

That is a great way to spend a day. Mr. Karate found a refugee who needs a place to spend Thanksgiving, so he is joining us. He is a fellow karate student who mom loves like a brother and both PlusOne and Mr. Karate admire him. He was an MP in Iraq until his arm got shattered by friendly fire. We are happy to have the courage to care.
