Just watched The Five people you meet in Heaven. Makes you think about what the story says.. that everything you do, everyone you meet or encounter, can change that persons life. The other day at CVS I saw an elderly woman on her knees feeling around the floor for something. I asked her if she needed help and she said she thought she dropped a dime or a quarter. I looked but didn't see it and reached in my pocket and I had a quarter in it and I gave it to her. She said "oh no you don't have to do that". I then pretended it was the quarter she lost. She was so happy. Maybe it is just a little thing but at the moment it was everything. Most people could care less if they drop a dime or a quarter and couldn't find it, but to her it was something. She probably grew up in the depression or perhaps is on a fixed income. What ever the case I was glad I could help her even if I was devious. How many others would of walked by? I have a strong love in my heart for the elderly after having worked with them for 18 years. The urge to help never goes away. Some people from the church and I went to the nursing home I used to work at and this old gentleman was in a chair and I thought he was going to stand up and I rushed forward to stop him. I don't work there anymore, I could of just stood there but I couldn't. I saw several people there that night that I knew, people I worked with and residents that knew me and it makes me feel so good that they are happy to see me. I hope I made a difference because that is what life is all about isn't it? Love and caring for your fellow man.
This is my Mom, she loved to bake and made the best cheesecakes! I think I got my caring heart from her. I love you Mom!
