If You’re Sad…

You are looking in the wrong places.

Don’t watch or read the news unless you can do so without reaction. (A challenge for me.)

People are good. My sister-in-law suffered a stroke. She’s only 50. We put up a GoFundMe and they received THREE times their goal.

A ten-year-old boy in our community lost his father to Covid. I collected money among our teachers and their network brought in $1,000 in two days. It’s still growing!

People are good. Remember that. Be the change you seek. Make effort for good.

This man. He is a dream come true. He flew with me from Arizona to Georgia. Packed up my mom’s belongings and loaded them on to the U-Haul. He drove for four days until we got home and get this: There was no cruise control in the truck!

And then he unloaded the truck and put the boxes in our garage. He returned it.

He’s nice to mom. He jokes with her, makes her feel welcome, and cheers her up when she’s sad about dad’s passing in July.

Today, he vacuumed and washed her car.

He is a generous spirit – with all of his family and friends. They know he would do anything for them. He is love personified.

Haul-lelujah

“I’m looking forward to our long drive from Georgia,” my husband says.

We will be driving from Lawrenceville, GA to Mesa, AZ (over 1,800 miles) to move my mother’s things from her old house to ours. After dad passed away in July, mom has been uprooted mentally, spiritually and physically.

But whose partner says they are looking forward to driving all day for several days? Mine. I’m fortunate to have a supportive partner who not only steps up but embraces this “adventure.” He’s excited to box things up, rent the equipment, tow mom’s car at the back of the truck and drive all the way back home for 27 hours. Thank you, William. I am grateful.
