Daily Inspiration-The Hat Man

“We should all be so driven!” ~ Morrie’s daughter Karen

Morrie Boogaart, aka The Hat Man, 91 years old, is spending the last part of his life, helping those in need. You see, Morrie is in hospice, after being diagnosed with kidney and skin cancer.  Instead of worrying about his own problems, Morrie spends his entire day knitting hats for the homeless. Even though he’s bedridden, he’s using his hands to help those in need before he dies. At last count, he has knitted over 8000 hats for those in need. Here’s his story.

About Tamara Hoerner (1348 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
