The sun sets on another day...

I have rewritten this post 10 times now. There is so much to say, and I try to stay on point one day at a time. (Hard to believe)

Sometimes I wish I did not feel so much, care so much, or want so much for everyone else. Sometimes I wish the other side would sacrifice, and someone would fight for me. Sometimes they do, sometimes they do not. I hope we all feel a little of this sometimes, I would rather you not feel it as much as I do, but at least feel. I would rather we all feel the wondrous moments of the person who does fight for us, than the person who gives up. Feel the magical warmth of those who go out of their way to make the world right, and not those who undermine themselves and others with it. Feel the warmth of another persons love, and not their disingenuous attempt at love. Feel, just feel.

So yesterday as I felt this way I was driving alone down a street and on the side of the road in the pouring rain, I could barely see (Because of selfsame pouring rain) two kids on the side of the road. They were soaked to the bone and kept wiping the water from their faces as the deluge threatened to wash them away. (Well, not really, but it was really really heavy)

Being as I am massive, I felt I could do nothing, and then in front of me I saw a parking lot, stopped my truck, stepped out with my umbrella (A nice big one with shades of blue and white) and while 50 feet in front of them opened it up and set it on the ground. I yelled, "this is for you." and got in my car and left. Not asking for anything, nor looking for praise here, just trying to help two young girls soaked in the rain and cold. As I left, I looked in my rear view mirror and saw them run to the umbrella, pick it up and get underneath it. I will never see them again, nor will I ever get thanks or appreciation, except that they waved and smiled as I disappeared on the road.

Usually I ask everyone to live life and love life each day, and live it like there was no tomorrow, but along the way, watch for the people who need that umbrella, and open it up for them, leave it for them, and move on. Someday it may well come back to help you, or it might not, but it is the right thing to do...

Sleep sweet, love life, and live every day as if there was no other...
