Thankful Thursdays…For the People I Don’t Know
Sounds a bit confusing, I know, but there are people I see every day who are a part of my life however, I don’t know them.
Oh, I know some of their names, and there are some I know enough to smile and say “hello” to.. There are a few we stop and chat with on occasion.
There’s Judith who plays the organ every Sunday…Thad and Wiley, his dog, who always has a big smile on his face (Thad, not the dog) …Sandra who twisted her ankle on a sweet gum tree ball… and many more.
There is also the gentleman we used to see and say “Good morning” to every day until one day in 2020, we never saw him again. Larry and I wish we knew his name and what happened…did he move away?
The young lady who assists at the self-check line chat when I’m going through and we act as if we’ve known each other for years.
I have friends and family whom I cherish. But I also would miss seeing the people I don’t know who make me smile every day…who bring me joy…and who have become a part of my world.
Life is beautiful not because of the things we see or do.
Life is beautiful because of the people we meet.
