Clump #117: Clear spare change out of drawer and donate to a good cause.
Today’s clump wasn’t big or difficult, but it sure felt good. I took all the spare change that my husband had accumulated in his bureau drawer (with his permission of course), and donated it to a bring-in-your-change fundraiser at our Quaker Meeting for victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.
Before Meeting we participated in a rousing rendition of The Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
The member who directed us remarked that the holidays tend to be a time of year for stress and strain, tiffs between people, etc., so she recommended, “Just say ‘Hallelujah,’ and it will all be fixed.”
Not everything can be fixed by saying “Hallelujah,” as many people in the Philippines could attest.
But I think it’s been scientifically proven that you can not feel holiday stresses or blues while singing the majestic Hallelujah Chorus.
