It's Good to Be Clean


Wash your hands. Use soap.
                     ~~Mom
 


Saturday's the perfect day for Whole Foods. I ate my way through the product samples while gathering a few items. My best buy for the quick trip was good soap,  3 for $6. I selected varying shades of white and fragrances: the ivory bar for Lavender, cream for Ginger Pear, and pure white for Clean Linen.
I'll use them with great pleasure.
 
Meanwhile, my sisters of perpetual charity are gathering singly-wrapped bars of soap for Lutheran World Relief. Last year we added 450 pounds of bar soap to a major shipment of health supplies sent overseas to refugee camps. A bar of soap (when water is available) is a great personal boon to miserable conditions.  
 
 What is elegance? Soap and water!

Good post for me. I've been packing and have decided that moving is horrendous, dirty work and I hate it.

what a great donation to such a wonderful charity!! Some things we take for granted...yet so cherished by those who don't have that luxury.
Good Job!!

Just the experience of being without hot water during a power outage is always enough to glory in the feel of a hot shower and soap again. And many in this world never have that. Bless you for doing what you can to alleviate that.
