Sappy Post

Because I deal with the general public on a daily basis I see a lot of stuff. I see parents who bring there kids to fill out forms because they can not read or write. I see people bring in there kids because they do not speak a word of English and are here in the country illegal. How do I know they are illegally here? They tell me as much. And what I can do? Nothing. And its frustrating having gone what I had do to be her legally.
I see old people.
I see young people.
I see sick and dying people (they tell me this too)

Life is a gift and each day I appreciate the people I still have in my life, I am thankful for so much.

What brought all this sappiness on? I had a father who is 92 years old come in with his son today. They were both pretty frail but so spunky and full of life. I hope to be like that when I am 92, joking and poking at each other teasing each other.

Its made my day, already and I just got here.... Oh and on the way to work in traffic I sneezed, and the car beside me said bless you. : )

What? A car spoke to you on the way to work this morning? That's impressive.

I agree, though. My best friend's father is getting on in his years - but he lives every day to the fullest and has so much fun. He's always smiling and enjoying the moment.

I hope I will be like that. I should try harder to be like that now.

I think to many people forget about helping eachother!

I like RWA's last comment... he is SO right. How many times have you caught yourself thinking, "when I get old" etc and yet today you do nothing of the sort? What kind of life is that? I think all of us should try now to be more like the people we want to be "someday" when we grow up!
