    I've been a pivotal part in each of the lives of my friends...but the "big" picture...I dont think I mattered YET.

    i've spent the last 3 years of my life raising money for kids to go to college. and have decided to devote the rest of my life to that as well.

    I have been there for my friends and helped them through hard times. I helped my sister through a very difficult delivery of her first baby. I've made my partner happy and helped us buy a house. Nothing earth-changing, but good in my own little way.

    Yea, Nance I believe it does though there's just really no way of knowing.

    I treat everybody the way I'd wanna be treated. I try to do something nice for somebody at least once a day, or it can be something as simple as smiling

    Unless my kids or grandkids do, I probably never will...

    Wow. This is a tough one. My wife and I were just talking about wanting to be known once we pass away-- we fear being forgotten. Have I made a dif? I hope-- only God knows.
    I hope that by talking things out with others who have become hurt or disillusioned by the church machine, and getting past the anger and pain, that collectively, maybe we'll make a difference down the road by just being "real" and honest.

    As a nurse I am able to make a significant difference someone's day almost every day that I work. It's what I love about my career the most...

    Hmm, I'm a recycling fanatic. That counts, right?

    I'm sure I've made small differences here and there, mostly unbeknownst to me. but yesterday I made a big difference in the lives of a mother and her 5 year old daughter. The daughter was hit by a car and I wowed even myself by being spot on with care and with consoling and getting everyone calmed down.

    I do volunteer and do foster care for abandoned, lost or mistreated Miniature Pinschers. I have had TONS of foster dogs and have adopted 3 of them for my own. We currently only take one foster dog at a time, but there have been times when we have had 2 or 3. 6 dogs in the house at a time is WAY too much! But I love them and I love the differences I see in them after only a few days at our home. I find them perfect homes to live out the rest of their lives. I also do home visits to approve new homes, help look for lost Min Pins and work to spread the name of the organization I volunteer for (Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, www.minpinrescue.org )They are my children. I love them all.

    I think that by just smiling at strangers when you are out in the world, I have made a difference. I know sometimes when I'm having a bad day, just that kind gesture can cheer me up.
