In honor of Maddie

The unimaginable pain is losing a child. I hope I never experience such a loss. How do I comfort someone who is suffering the loss of their child?  No words are adequate.

Madison Paige is the daughter of a family friend who tragically lost his daughter this past week. As he and others shared her photos on Facebook, I saw a beautiful smile and a loving spirit. She brought such joy! Now through her gift of organ donation, “Maddie” lives and loves on in others who now share her beautiful smile and loving spirit.

Maddie is a Watering Can of the highest measure. In honor of this beautiful child, Maddie, please consider registering as an organ donor.

What is a Watering Can?

A Watering Can is a person who helps others thrive. I believe our purpose here on earth is to be of service to others.God has given each one of us gifts to help others thrive. I began The Watering Can campaign in January 2015 as personal initiative to serve others and motivate others to do the same.

“The Watering Can – Helping All of God’s Creatures Thrive.”

The Watering Can is my personal initiative to serve others in need, to be a service resource, and to provide service development for those who want to become their own watering can in their community and beyond.

The Watering Can is a life of service built on the belief that each person and all God’s creatures have intrinsic value deserving of love and a quality life without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation, breed or species.

“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.” Thomas Merton

“Water is a necessity to live.  Love is a necessity to thrive.”  The Watering Can

In the fall of 2014, I began a personal initiative called, The Watering Can – Helping All God’s Creatures Thrive©.  This initiative is to serve and help others thrive in faith, family, career or simply, in life. The Watering Can is also a resource to mentor others in a life of service in their community and beyond.

The Watering Can is a life of service grounded in the belief that each person and all God’s creatures have intrinsic value deserving of love and a quality of life  without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation, breed or species.  Each one of us has a purpose, gifts and talents to help one another blossom to our fullest potential.  Unfortunately, not all seeds have been cast on fertile ground or healthy environments to succeed.

Kindness is free.

A smile is free.

A hug is free.

A word of encouragement is free.

All these drops of love swell into a ripple of hope.

YET, there is so much more that each of us can do as individuals to help all God’s creatures thrive.  A Watering Can use their time, talents and treasures in traditional and creative ways to lift one another up.

Follow me here at The Blogging Owl.  Future Watering Can posts will be about people and organizations that are helping all God’s creatures thrive so you can be encouraged to become a Watering Can too.
