When people ask me “How are you doing?” I’ve got to stop replying, “Good,” because I’m better than that. As much as I’ve lost within the past year alone, I still have more than some. I still have a roof over my head, food on the table, and clothes on my back. I still have my sanity, even though many probably lost theirs, as a result of this on-going pandemic. I have a lot to be grateful and thankful for, no matter what my circumstances are. When I start to complain about not having enough, I think of the homeless man that sleeps in the parking garage of a building, or the other homeless man, who sleeps on the corner stoop of the public library. Whenever I drive in to work and see them, I really see how fortunate I am, and most importantly, I see how they could easily become me.
Until next time my NOTE takers!
