You know what they say, dear Readers: Karma’s a B*!@$, and Jewish Karma’s a B*!@$ that will kvetch about it to you forever. So, with this in mind, your dear Retirement Yenta has set out to do some good deeds. Positive energy in the world is a powerful thing. When RY helps a fellow citizen/neighbor with a need, not only does it help RY’s neighbor, but it also makes RY feel good that she was able to help out. Giving back to one’s community is a major plus…it makes the community a happier place to live. Now, dear Readers, keep this in mind…good deeds can have a snowball effect…and others will begin to pitch in too. As another great sage, Opera Winfrey, says: Pay it forward, people. OR, better yet, you could quote the sagier (maybe that’s not a word, but RY likes it anyway) Retirement Yenta: Go out and be a Mitzvah Mamma.
