Hope in Time of Recession

3. Blessing others. The last thing I do is I try to figure out how to bless someone else. How would I lift their depression or help them in their time of need? What would help them feel blessed, special, and give them the sense that everything is going to be okay? This could be anything from a prayer to a good meal to a listening ear. I'll freely admit I'm not always the best on this point, but my goal is to grow better at this with time and practice.
