A Nudge from HP

I’d turned them down last fall and had no idea I was still on their list.  I think it was a mistake that they emailed me.  But I’ve been feeling a need to reach out into the world, to think about someone other than myself and my small family. It’s a nudge from my Higher Power, I think.  This time I’m ready.
