Better than good

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!
