‘Twas the Tuesday before Christmas when I had two loads of laundry to heave. I was ready to take on the day plus I needed fresh clothing ☺. After making my trip to the laundromat I headed to the junction area. I live relatively close to it. However, the bus ride was slow as molasses getting to my destination. I realized after I had the same view for five minutes that we were going nowhere near my location. So, I left the bus with my shopping cart and rolled it the rest of the way until I noticed something. Or rather someone out of the ordinary. He was whiter than snow and decrepit holding a walking cane. His waving hand drew my attention and caused me to stop in my tracks. I thought he was waving to someone he knew. Then it was like a well-lit bulb over my head. He was waving at anyone who would stop and observe. I’m all about observing! On his navy colored winter coat lay a button that read: I am deaf and blind. While he waved unceasingly I proceeded to put my right hand in his as he clenched it. As I saw his body wanting to move forward, I guided him across two streets and pulled my folded cart with my left hand. Once he felt comfortable to let go he did so. He signed the words: Thank you. I smiled at the brief encounter and how I was able to help someone in need because I decided to stop and make myself available. It’s amazing the things we can do when we extend our gifts and abilities to benefit others.
Remember your worth and search out what gifts God has bestowed upon you to share with humanity. He’s faithful to complete the work He’s begun.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a blessed, productive New Year!!!!
