Maybe you’re noticed my cover photo and don’t think twice about it.
Maybe you have and decided you don’t like me and haven’t even met me… Maybe you think my language isn’t *good and proper”
Well, that’s fine and dandy because I really really do GIVE A DAMN!
I give a damn about the small business owner that’s struggling to get clients.
I give a damn about the single mom that is selling her house because she can’t afford to keep it.
I give a damn about the artist that spent hours creating a painting to have the person “change their mind” and not pay for the work they requested.
I give a damn about the teenage boy that asked for a hug with tears rolling down his face because everyone is “social distancing” and he hasn’t had a hug in months.
I give a damn about the waitress that works 3 jobs to pay her bills and cries with surprise when I give a 10$ tip on a 20$ order.
I give a damn about the elderly man that said “I didn’t fight in 2 wars to be told to wear a mask at the grocery store or be told not to have a gun”
I give a damn about my children and grandchildren, and about the other children and grandchildren out there that need someone to give a damn about them.
I give a damn about the deaf and hard of hearing people that feel even more isolated because they can’t see the lips of people.
I give a damn about my business, my passion, my art and craft. My business provides for other families, and when people get massages at my place, we turn around and support other local businesses. It’s a beautiful ripple effect.
I give a damn about my LEO, Firefighters. Veterans and those that love them.
I give a damn about the overworked and stressed out nurses and hospital staff.
I give a damn about the people that have to be isolated for health and safety reasons. I give a damn about the people they are missing and the things they can’t do anymore
I give a damn about the baby that teaches out for me to interact because his daddy is playing a game on his phone and ignoring the best thing ever.
I give a damn about the litter in the parking lots from lazy people that toss masks and trash as they walk to the car.
I give a damn about buying Christmas gifts that mean something special.
I give a damn about good music and good food.
I give a damn about saying what you mean and doing what you say
I was raised this way
I’m never giving up.
You know why?
Because I give a damn and you should,too!
