I Seem To Need To Write This

Have you ever known a person who whines all time about one thing and another? Have you known a person who is always angry at someone about something every time you talk to them? I've known both in my life time. I would like to be able to tell them about a woman I heard about a few days ago. If anyone has a right to be angry or whine, she does, but from all accounts she doesn't. My neighbor is out of work for the summer so she is doing odd jobs to fill in with her bills. She told me she drove in to San Antonio to sit with a lady for four hours. She told me the lady has lost both arms in an auto accident and to add insult to injury her husband left her. Can you imagine what all we use our arms for in life? Eating, dressing, going to the bathroom, almost everything. My neighbor said she even had to light a cigarette and put it into her mouth and then take it out for her. I don't approve of smoking but who could judge in this case? Maybe one of her few pleasures left. Sorry I just needed to write this down and remind myself that I'm lucky and I should be very thankful.

Yes and Yes. I know folk who are mad/complain all the time. I know one who complains constantly. Everything bad that happens to them is someone else's fault.
AND YES again we remind ourselves how fortunate, blessed and lucky at times. I just heard of a first cousin in bad shape, much younger than I. Yep I want to always count my blessings.

I have known plenty in my time and lived around a few, ha. I try not to complain, but can't help myself sometimes. It's sad the lady losing both arms, but to my thinking she didn't have much of a husband if he a banded her on that account.

No matter how bad it seems, things could always be worse. Often times people who are always whiny or angry run off what help they might of received because of it.

We should always be thankful for our many blessings :) Life is short and needs to be enjoyed no matter what.
