Not Great, Only Kind
--by lovebug, posted May 25, 2007
This has really been the perfect day, not to hot, not cold, so I decided I would use it to work in my yard. I love sitting on the earth, pulling weeds and keeping my little space clean, somewhere in my mind I feel that it comforts the weary souls who pass by .
Today, two special things happened today that really birghtened my day.
Since I am getting older now and have slowed down, I decided early what I was going to accomplish today and started out with a lot of energy, but about half way thru my muscles cramped and I decided to stretch out on the lawn for a minute. Much to my surprise, I heard a voice ask me, "Are you alright?" A stranger saw me and was concerned. What a beautiful soul!
I had the wheel barrow with me to put the weeds in and just as I pushing that, a maroon colored car came around the corner and stopped to wave and smile. As I was completing my work and dumping the last of the weeds, a car stopped and a stranger said, "I want to thank you." I was really confused. I had not left my yard all day. What could I have done to gain this gratitude? He procceeded to tell me that I had taken my hands off of pushing my load of weeds long enough to wave at him and smile at him, and it meant a lot to him.
It is these small things of life. They really do make a difference to many. We do not have to be great, only kind.
Her Thousands of minutes
In his memories and
Thousands of memories
In his love
Burned in fire
was still desire
she was spending her days in loneness
and Dark nights covered
Her Breathe departed this life
That was shady night
Darkness occupied over light
Death embraced her life
Well I don't consider suicide a selfish act even though you do
