We all need a little perspective sometimes...

and today mine came in the form of one man. I was feeling sorry for myself and missing my Daddy like crazy today. I was on my way to my patients house (whom I had never met)and sobbing to "Grandpa, tell me about the good ole days" when I pulled up to this mans house. He has been a quadraplegic almost half his life. He is in pretty rough condition, but you know what? This man was WONDERFUL. I stayed WAY past my usual half an hour visit, pushing 2 hours with him. We talked about life and laughed and laughed. He was just what I needed today, to make me stop feeling sorry for myself...and you know what? I think somehow, I was just what he needed today. Its amazing how God puts us in this paths when we need it the most!

  1. Thanks for the reminder that sometimes all we need to spend is 'time' with others. I have a friend that passed away this week - I'm regretting that we didn't spend more time with each other these past few years...but I have some good memories.
