Thank you for your response, janellehale4. I strongly agree with your perspective on being human ~ yup, brothers/sisters is what we are, if only more people could understand that.
Don't be sad for me, please, I have good days and bad. Living here is closer to my family than it was 2 years ago so, starting in April, I was able to visit my Mom once a month (before the cold and snow hit). it's a long drive but Mom is 89 years old so any time I have with her is a treasure.
So yesterday my sister's husband invited us to their place for thanksgiving ~ it's a 12 hour drive but we are going to make that drive to Florida for the holiday (I'm tired already LOL)
You sound like a very nice person, very caring. My hubby and I make a point of talking to all the people that work at our grocery store, we read their name tags and always use their names when we talk to them. Everyone wants to be acknowledged as an individual, not just someone behind a counter. LOL, if I go to the store without my hubby they always ask where my other half is ~ we love seeing their friendly faces each week
This world needs more people who can simply smile and say hello . . . kindness never goes out of style
Here's to being an ambassador of kindness ~ Oh Happy Day!
