Two Things


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


The sun came back today, figuratively.

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

She is 87 years old, I believe, and shows up every single day. She ainโ€™t fast but sheโ€™s steady. Iโ€™d see her and say hey and sheโ€™d inform me that, โ€œYes. Iโ€™m still alive.โ€ And then just laugh.

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

I hadnโ€™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, โ€œYes. Iโ€™m still alive!โ€ And gave me the biggest hug.

She wonโ€™t stop. I love people with that old school drive.

Thatโ€™s how I want to end up.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.
