In this life we find ourselves rushing from one thing to another.
To – learn how to walk, talk, and use the potty
To – Start school, write our names and numbers
To- Middle School (1st bras, and other body developments)
To – High School (cute boys, prom, graduation)
To – Find a job or college, 1st car
To- Marry, house babies – success
To - Retirement ( S.S. Office for check and Human Resources Office for Pensions )
And then we realize we don’t have to rush anymore. No more rushing to clock in, no children to rush to the school bus, nor rushing to the supermarket, we now have TIME – Time to realize how blessed we are with health, family, and friends. I have been blessed with a group of people who genuinely care about me – my BDMLSF Family. Since my absence from this class they have never failed to acknowledge me and show love. Mr. Gordon, my BFF, has called me and prayed for my son here at the center and over the phone. Ms. Helen, Bea, Hattie and others have inquired about his progress. Thank you! I have also met new friends in my travels to hospitals and nursing homes, we have shared our similar stories about our loved ones illnesses. Strangers who took the time to stop and ask if I need anything. We have cried, laughed, and drank pots of coffee in waiting room lobbies, and patient rooms. So, take the time to stop, look and listen to this beautiful world we live in and to caring people. I have felt that these experiences have been a reflection of God’s love for me.
