Just Do It

Today is a holiday in America–Memorial Day. My great-grandmother always called it “Decoration Day” which always confused me as a kid. But I was often confused about everything.

So, between being a holiday and recovering from yet another bout with allergies, I’ve been a bit lazy this morning. As I gazed from my patio across the yards, I noticed a couple of large pieces of plastic blown by the wind.

I thought, I could sit here and watch. Or, I could get up, walk about 30 yards, and do the neighborhood a favor by picking them up and disposing them.

So often we are faced with these small decisions. Sometimes we may not even recognize that a decision is required. But it is. We can sit and leave the problem to someone else. Or, we can get up and just do it. Whatever it takes.

Now I (and my neighbors) can sit outside on a nice spring day and enjoy the view.
