A young man asked me

Yesterday a young man asked me what he could do about his inappropriate behaviour (I won't pass any remarks on what it was). Apart from telling him not to discuss such matters with a respectable woman, I told him that the Devil makes work for idle hands.

If you have too much time to think about things, the Devil will lead you astray. Go and help someone less fortunate than yourself - there's always someone out there who has less than you. Get and keep busy and soon you will find that your mind isn't turning to evil thoughts, you're too tired and get refreshing sleep instead of tossing and turning with bad dreams.
Try it.

How do you do?

I was born in 1894 and married at 21. I had six children and my husband died when the youngest was three. I raised them on my own, through the War and saw them grow up, get married or stay single, and leave home. I've had heartaches, I've been poor and I've lived a good life. If you need help or you're in trouble, maybe I can lend a hand. Let me know and I'll do what I can.
