Two Things

One:

The sun came back today, literally. It has done nothing but rain for the last few days. I’m no sun worshiper by any stretch of the imagination, but today I enjoyed the feel of it on my skin.

Two:

The sun came back today, figuratively.

I work several stores for my company and at one is an elderly lady, I’ll call her Ms. B.

She is 87 years old, I believe, and shows up every single day. She ain’t fast but she’s steady. I’d see her and say hey and she’d inform me that, β€œYes. I’m still alive.” And then just laugh.

Five months ago she broke her hip and I missed my little friend. I figured she’d never come back. But all my best wishes were with her.

I hadn’t been to the store this week and I was walking by the break room when I saw someone with their head down in a chair. I slid up beside Ms. B and put my arm around her and without opening her eyes she said, β€œYes. I’m still alive!” And gave me the biggest hug.

She won’t stop. I love people with that old school drive.

That’s how I want to end up.

That’s it. That’s the post.
