When looking back on your life it seems the past is our perception not always the way it actually happened. Most people look back at yesterday and find life was simpler better in some respect. But in reality all times do have their bad and good. The trouble with our times is the future is not what is was meant to be. Paul Valerty
I have strived to be perfect my whole life…Guess what I failed!!! It is not easy being perfect so do not know why so many people want to continue on the road to perfection. We are imperfect in an imperfect world…… Nobody’s perfect…well there as that one guy…but we killed him
I have been thinking of some of my seemingly insignificant memories. One comes in mind , my cousin who was had lung cancer was hospitalized back in the early nineties and later died. I was visiting her every day until her death and we had so many soul searching talks but the one thing that stands out is she said one day ” do you make your bed every day?” I said of course I could not leave the house without making my bed. She said,” I feel the same way”. Now here we are in 2017 and so many times when I make my bed that conversation comes to my mind. After all these years I still wonder why that conversation is so cemented in my head. I will continue to think of the answer because I feel the reason I think about it so often is the significance of the talk…..
For those of you who do not know what a midnight run is it is an organization who helps cloth and feed the homeless in NYC. I take part in this run 2 times a year. It is a great experience to help the people who are less fortunate than you. As I have said in previous posts volunteering not only helps the other person but helps the volunteer also. I go with a great group of people and we have become close throughout these past few years. One of the homeless asked me “Does God tell you to do this?” I said “yes he does” then she asked ” what exactly did he say” I answered quickly although the question surprised me….I said: ” He said , Kathy go help the people” She said ” God Bless You” Again it is a truly humbling and eye opening experience and I felt the need to share! Being homeless is like living in a post-apocalyptic world. You’re on the outskirts of society. Frank Dillane
