Some but not the Sum

Today’s stream of Consciousness prompt is Some or Sum.

When I am asked to give to charity I may be very willing to give some of my money, especially if it is for Alzheimer’s. That is my one charity. I will sometimes give to other charities, but Alzheimer’s has had the greatest effect on my life and I would love to affect a change in the world where there is not even some of the people suffering from the disease. I would like there to be none.

When I am asked to give money to people, I would like them to understand that there is a finite sum of money in my bank account. Sometimes I think they would really expect me to give them that entire sum. Some people just don’t appreciate the fact that I need to keep some of that sum in my bank account for my own expenses.

Speaking of some and sum…. okay, I am drawing a blank. I guess that’s all I have to say.

I am a dreamer who loves to explore the world through words. I hope to inspire others to live in peace and be their best selves. I also have an affinity for flamingos, gnomes, and all things magical. They live happily in my gardens.

    Alzheimer’s is a great cause. It’s a terrible disease.Yes, we all want to help, but there’s only so much help we can give.

    Oh!!! this is what I tell my teenaged boys everyday. My debit card has quite a severe limit, which is quickly and alarmingly reached quite shortly after payday. But they do not listen.

    I love it when they say “every little bit helps,” but they sneer at you when you only give a “little bit.” 🙄
