All of us want to be fair and helpful but how far do you Go?


Encouragement for those that try to help others.


How far do you go
To help someone you know ?
When do you say no
When your help is needed so?

All of us are faced
At some point in our lives
With all our values based
On helping all to survive .

How much do you take
From those that put you down ?
Itís not a piece of cake
To keep from wearing a frown.

Be true to yourself, to do your best .
In order to help, you have to stay strong .
When you grow tired, always take a rest.
If your helping another youíll never go wrong !

I do so love your writes so much. Easily flowing words and so easy to read. Get lots of inspiration from them and help from your helping hands too. Sometimes we do have to say no, cause we are exhausted or don't know which way to go with that person. Saying no is fine and should be done more.

A message of togetherness and shareness... "How Far Do You Go"
has paid its share to WINNERS Corporation. A profound message to
build souls and society.

In gratitude and reverent admiration.
