First Day of Fall and the scene I saw, well it made me pause...

Today was the  First Day of Fall and  I was driving on the road, the scene I saw  made me pause...

I was heading to the Vet's Office to pick up Wiley and I saw this car in front of me: a Rolls Rolls. Not picking on the owner, but WHY have a two million dollar car? Is it the ego? Is it status?

As I looked to my left there was a long line in front of a  Church.  They were serving food for the needy. I glanced at the line and some looked clearly in need of food others... well not so much. Driving and not being able to take both pictures I opted for the car in front of me.  I figured on my way back I will still be able to capture the food line.

Sure enough, two hours later on my way back the same scene was there, different people, some in need others well let me just bite my tongue...

My take was, how lucky Diane and I are that we can live comfortably and take care of three cats and a dog. Not only with food but with healthcare as well. So with that said I am very grateful for what we have. Then to boot, I closed a sale today. (future post)

Endre, I used to judge how money was spent.  I came to realize that no matter our level there will always be someone looking at us saying that we waste our money in how we spend it.  While we may look at 2mil car as wasteful who knows how much this person may give to charities, or food banks.  I try not put my restrictions on others.  As you know I am from Southern California so very much aware of the ego's of which you speak.  It is a way of life for many down there.  Good or not so good, I certainly will not ever be able to change spending habits of someone else so will watch my own and as you find gratitude in being able to give.  Mark

Isn't it amazing how we take for granted something as simple as opening  the frig and having food there. Your little jaunt helped me think about things. Wiley doesn't look to happy but am sure he is, cheers cvc

Yes! The gap widens and since stimulus checks were issued, I wonder how many are really in need and can't get jobs and how many milk the system. But I do think there are a lot of people who aren't fortunate. As for the guy with the Rolls Royse, I'm hoping he made a substanial donation, but you never know.

Some take advantage of generosity, Endre. Others prefer to be givers. Like you, I am so thankful for what we have and to know how hard we worked for it, makes us appreciate it even more. In turn, it makes us WANT to give and help those who TRULY can't help themselves...and it's not everyone in the food line either!

How is Wylie? 

Lastly, congratulations on the sale. You are killing it this year!!

Good morning Endre Barath, Jr., some people get to a point where they're not satisfied with simple things, they go for the 2 mil. dollar cars. I am grateful to have the ability to give. Congratulations to you on the sale!
