Long cold day....

Spring has come yet it is as cold & crisp as a fall day. Winter still seems to be hanging on for dear life.As much as I long for the warmth of spring, I do regret the passing of winter. I love the cold, it reminds me of how blessed I am to have a safe warm house.It reminds me to think of & meditate about life changes for those less fortunate.I have always been blessed with the ability to land on my feet & have never had to worry about shelter & warmth.
Today was orientation for new clients & I watched several people come in.....Cold, dirty, hungry, scared, untrusting, hurting & angry. It was a humbling experience . I struggle with anger & work daily at trying to be thankful....I watched this one addict couple that was there to see about getting onto the program .

He was kind to her & shared what little money they had & made sure that her food needs were met before he bought himself anything. And I am sure he was equally as hungry. That is love.

To watch 2 people who obviously have less than most of us be thankful for what they have. I learned alot from watching them.
I was able to give give them more food for their money & even at a discounted price I gave them change.This dirty , tired, hungry man put the change into my tip cup.And smiled & told me to have a great day.
I will never forget that blessing. It was the most important tip of my lifetime.
In all things be kind, loving & do no harm...
