This Week’s Lesson
Putting the needs of others before yours will pay you back sometime in the future.
-Michael M’s life lesson from Marshalltown, Iowa
I often speak about how we don’t do enough for ourselves and I still believe that is true. How often do you take time for something you really enjoy? Well, now is the time to do something for someone else!
Just imagine the impact we can all have if you take two minutes today and ask the person in the office next to yours, “Is there anything I can do for you today?” Or by just dropping a note in someone’s mailbox.
You have the power to make someone’s day. Make sure it’s a positive impact!

I know with the economy, money is tight. I also don’t ask for much from my readers. But I have a huge favor to ask.
In less than 30 days, quite possibly, the potential for me to marry will be decided by the state of California. A win could spark court challenges all across the country. A wave which until now has been a dream. A loss could mean new laws on the books, court cases thrown out; especially now with precedent against marriage equality.
This is our moment. This is our chance. It is within our grasp and we must not let this moment pass us by.
I ask two things.
First – if you know people in California, PLEASE ask them to oppose Proposition 8. If passed, the following statement will be added to the California State Constitution: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” We cannot let that happen. Please make sure your friends get out and vote against this terrible piece of law.
Second – The NoOnProp8 campaign needs funds. They are currently being outspent by $10 million. The hearts and minds of people are being won with false information and we have to help. I have started and I may add to my donation in the coming days. Please give if you can. The polling numbers have started to shift against our cause. Against equal rights. We cannot let it happen.
Even if you don’t live in California, this will affect the entire United States. Please do what you can to ensure the right to marry for all.
I stumbled upon a hilarious website today. I think anyone in the 25-20 year old range will remember these photos… perhaps you still have one.
For those younger… count yourself blessed. Seriously.
