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.
