I am sitting at a McDonalds in the Seattle, WA area having my order taken by a young man with only one good arm at the register.
He was nervous & flustered but did a good job.
I tried to put him at ease.
In that moment - I was reminded again that I have my health and the use of my limbs.
I am grateful every day to be able to get out of bed pain free and navigate the day.
Thank You God
As I've often said, "I don't have to look very far to find somebody I wouldn't trade troubles with."
I have to look a little further now.
I applaud any company that is willing to provide jobs to those less fortunate than I. Not that I frequent McD's much anymore, but this young man probably has a good work ethic. Wish him well.
I have always maintained that everyone you meet has a cross to bear,and as crosses go,mine isn't that heavy.
I'm Very Thankful this year that my very dear and close friend and neighbor, Ralph Ricks, is still able to post here on the forum!
Tomorrow the Long Beach Model T club will be delivering boxes of food to needy families in the LB area. Performance Tire has been organizing and promoting this for several years.
I like to believe I am in excellent health, but each morning as I get out of bed and tell God "thank you for another day," I am quite aware,
I am not the same as I was ten years ago. I've learned not to complain about every little pain
and when my doctor asks how I have been feeling,
I lay it all out to her and let her worry about things for me.
I agree with Jack Daron, that no matter how big I might think my cross is to bear, I think about my friend ED whose troubles are truly greater than mine
So when I am out, I note those who continue to
do the things they do that their age should preclude them from doing, I would, except to be thought of as being out of order, I smile and go on my way.
I appreciate the health my other half and I enjoy
and I am thankful for her.
