My Youngest Son and his Son mashing potatoes for dinner yesterday
The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse.
Living by myself I know for a fact that we can all get wrapped up in our own world, life, and problems to the point that we fail to see the needs of others. It’s easy when you are by yourself and don’t see many people day in and day out. I guess that is why it so important that we keep in touch with those around us. With all the online opportunities we have now there is really no excuse for not doing so.
Thankfully I do have friends and family that keep in touch and because they do, I have other things to think about and to do besides thinking about myself. They mean the world to me. And my world is larger too because of them.
Sometimes we think that because we don’t hear from someone, that they must not care. But that goes both ways, I think. It’s easy to write a note or call someone, it only takes a moment. Sometimes it means we have to take the initiative.
Nothing costs as much as caring—except not caring.
My Thankful List - Day 24
1161. for a quiet Sunday to rest and relax
1162. for a family that shares and cares
1163. for leftover turkey
If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.
