"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Carried a Busy Mom's Bags

The project:
Take a load off for a mom with her hands full - grab her extra bags and carry them to their destination.


Why bother?
My girls are big enough to lend a hand now, but it hasn't been so long that I've forgotten what a job it is to juggle all the extra bags that come with parenthood. In this case, the overloaded mom was carrying her purse, some other clunky bag and a lunch bag, all while trying to order a beverage to go with her picnic lunch.

Life's much easier when one hand is free.

Worth it?
