Peace Corps perspective on a cup half full

Dear Editor,

I enjoyed reading in the Friday, June 16, issue Al Earley’s article “How Full is Your Cup.” Cited were several responses to the oft-asked question “is the cup half empty or half full?”

These clever responses caused me to smile. However, I would like to add one additional remark.

My husband and I are returned Peace Corps volunteers and we would say the Peace Corps reply to that half glass of water is, “I could take a bath in that!”

My cup is certainly overflowing. I especially enjoyed Earley’s final paragraph reviewing God’s many blessings, as well as the challenge to serve others by finding ways to fill someone else’s cup. As God blesses us, I believe he equips, empowers, enables and energizes us to be a blessings to others!
