When you are people watching you never know what someone’s life is about or really who they are. Seldom, if ever do I get involved in someone's life unless I am invited. I remember a header on Mel’s blog ‘Honey I’m Home’. The header I remember (not the last one) had a quote on it I appreciated, “Be kind to the people you meet, you have no idea of the drama or pain they are enduring.” (Something like that)
There is not a person (except me) that doesn’t have a problem that is tugging at their life, heart or finances. (Okay, I’m included, I just remembered one, no make that two.)
I feel sorry for the guy or gal standing with the sign at Exits or busy corners. Seeing young men standing there who LOOK healthy, asking for a handout. There is always the little note ‘God Bless’. I know firsthand of a couple folk who do this. They do not consider it humiliating to stand there, they consider it a job.
I am sure that is not the case of all of them, but the freeloaders I know, come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, I have given and will again, I am sure. I always wonder what has happened in that person’s life.
Recently we were informed of some terrible news. A sweet lady was having a problem keeping something on her stomach. Finally after test after test, there was an X-ray or MRI, something to check out her stomach. It was discovered there was a remote camera left in her stomach from an operation a year ago. TRUE. OUCH. Now her sister a good friend of ours and a regular reader of this blog, has informed us they discovered cancer while trying to retrieve the camera.
Yes, we all have our problems, but some are HUGE. If you pray, say a prayer for this sweet lady. If you do not pray, send some positive thoughts toward North Carolina. I am sure the family is in shock. This sickness has been going on for quite a while. I do not think the result was on anyone’s radar.
YES. Yes under the light many of our problems won’t even show up in comparison.
