THANKS FOR MAKING OUR DAY
10:30 Friday morning. I thought I had left my lunch in my car. After visiting a patient I headed for the parking lot. I was to find out this evening that I had left my lunch at home. But at that moment, with the rain lightly coming down and a chill in the air, I headed for my car. Here's a view of the street (S 18th) looking downtown that I crossed to get to the parking lot.
In the parking lot, gathering up rubbish, was a friend of mine. Something inside of me said, "see if he wouldn't mind my taking a picture of him. I knew that, if he chose, I would get a chance to let you enjoy seeing a very warm, generous human being. Even the rain would not keep him from smiling and spending a little time with another human being.
Somehow we got into this wonderful story where he talked about being a Q-KID... his generous community service was highlighted on Channel 13 for a month. Here is what he said.
Thanks, buddy, for bringing some much needed sunshine into my (our) life on a rainy day.
Friends... how about sharing some folks who bring sunshine into your life.
