OT - Worthwhile Read
- Ahoj Slovaci,
This was sent to me by my sister. She's "A Keeper."
I think it's a worthwhile read.
It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that
re-fixing, reheating, renewing, I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste
affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more.
But then my Mother died, and on that clear winter's night, in a cold
hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes
there isn't any 'more.' Sometimes, what we care about most gets all
used up and goes away...never to return.
So...while we have it....it's best we love it..... and care for
it.....and fix it when it's broken.....and heal it when it's sick. This is
true.....for marriage.....and old cars..... and children with bad
report cards.....and dogs with bad hips..... and aging parents
We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.
Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved away, a work
buddy--or -- a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that
make life important, like people we know who are special..... and so, we
keep them close!
I received this from someone who thought I was a 'Keeper'! then I sent
it to the people I think of in the same way. Now it's your turn to send
this to all those people that are "Keepers" in your life...like you !!
You're a Keeper!
- Your welcome Rita,
I thought it was well written and expressed a fine sentiment.
