Dealing with the recession is not my favorite passtime.
I'd rather have enough money to do what I think should be done. But that's not the case.
I've found out, however, that the recession is not only bad.
The past years I've kept the clothes my kids couldn't wear anymore...in case off...
And now I can use them well.
A month ago I was able to give a family a choice of trousers for their children.
They were very happy because it saved them a lot of money.
I was even able to give them a few things for their baby.
A few days ago a friend told me she knew another family in need.
They needed T-shirts and that was arranged too.
Then I got some clothes from people I don't know to give to others.
As my house is full enough I gave it to a friend to deal with it.
First I have to rearrange our house as one of my sons is planning to move out and he has some things at the attic that he wants to take with him. It means a lot of untidiness before everything has found a new place.
But the idea of giving away what can be missed inspired others to give away things too.
And that's precisely what I like: people thinking about what others need, not wanting things in return.
That way the recession changes people into better human beings, creates social behaviour.
