The other day as I was sitting on my couch, I looked out the window to see an older woman walking down the sidewalk with a grocery bag full of garbage. She had a little pincer device, and was busy cleaning up the sidewalk as she went along! What a great idea!
When I was in college I would pick up trash as I was walking, but somewhere along the line I lost that -- though, I do still feel guilty when I pass it by.
This wonderful lady's example has filled me with a new resolve: When ever I go walking I too will take a grocery bag with me and fill it with the trash that I see. What a great example she was, and she wasn't even trying! What a great example this will be to my children.
