It never mattered who it was, she was always willing to help and visit with a person if only to make them feel...

Out of ALL of the values you have listed, I think caring is potentially the MOST important. It IS the basis for compassion, understanding, love, friendships, and SOOOOO much more. I have a "group" ( you can join on my Facebook page ) that you can join that I call "Conscientious Protectors". Read about it and join if you like. If we all cared more about the important things in life ( which is why I LOVE Values.com's TV commercials ), then this world would be a FAR better place for all.

We must take care physically, mentally and spiritually so we can do and be the best for others as well.

To be wanted gives you more confidence than you realize, folks that are quiet feel that their words have no value.

Kevin from Alabama JANUARY 1, 2013
Saying you care is words people hear. Going just one step beyond, being honest and doing something "just because", that's the ULTIMATE proof of love and care. THEY GO HAND-IN-HAND
