The kids and I took a couple of days and went to go visit the folks in Miami.I really don't like to drive..one of those things I do because I have to..not because I want to..but thankfully there was no rain on my journey down and the construction and traffic were not to bad at all.
On the way back from the beach we had to cross a busy intersection,and well Mom doesn't walk very well and I had to hold on to her as we walked.Well when the light turned green for us to go,we began..slowly..but moving..and as the yellow light began to blink,and eventually turned red...a man that was waiting for us to pass yells out.."Red means don't go"..in a really rude and obnoxious way...well,fortunately my mother didn't understand what he meant and the kids had already gone on ahead,...but I heard him...loud and clear...and his voice echoed in my mind for the rest of the day and night...Whatever happened to kindness anyway?Has it gone out with the trash accidentally?
A couple of days ago Sweet Marion from http://aboutcreate.blogspot.com/ posted words on Kindness,..and they moved me,and they reminded me of my husbands 3 month hospital stay...I didn't see a lot of kindness during those months...but the compassion that crossed me left a lasting impression....things like a...slight squeeze of support,or a smile,having someone look directly at you when they spoke to you,...That kindness and compassion stayed with me..it molded me and I am truly blessed.I suppose it just saddens me when someone can be so cold..and consumed in only me..me..me.....Has it become so hard to show a little kindness?I hope not.I hope not.I HOPE not!
Getting my frustration out..thanks for listening.
