Sometimes we think our lives are tough and perhaps unfair. But yesterday evening when I was heading to my friend Amélie, I had to drive by a mailbox to drop off a letter with prescriptions for my patients. It was dark and raining and as I mailed my letter, I saw a man in a wheelchair sitting in the rain in the dark. I took my umbrella out of the car and hurried over to him. He was old, overweight and I asked him if he had an umbrella. He said no, and told me the bus driver didn‘t see him and drove right by. I opened up the umbrella and handed it to him and wished him a Happy New Year and Drove away. He waved to me in the dark with a big smile on his face.
I knew I could never have lifted the wheelchair to have taken him home but at least I made an old invalid man happy. Isn‘t that what life is supposed to be? About making this world a little bit more beautiful? So no matter how tough life is, we need to be grateful for what we have. Don’t we? 🎈☂️
