“When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.”

-Joel Osteen

blessings I often think back to when I was in grade school and a classmate was picked on because instead of wearing ribbons in her hair she had pieces of cloth. I felt bad for her, but did not say anything. I am not sure why I didn’t say anything, probably was to shy and wanted the other girls to like me.

My friends, teachers and community members thought we were well off. We weren’t as my mother did not work, having four children in the family, my dad was a school teacher. He was a football coach and drove a school bus when needed. My brothers and sister qualified for the free lunch program, but we did not know that until our Dad shared that information when we were adults. We lived in a large brick house, built next to “trailer houses”. Our mother made my clothes until the time when I learned how to make my own.

 

One thought to “Blessings”

    Thanks to those past and present who do a job that many dont give a second thought about. I was looking after my niece and nephews one Nov 11 some years ago and took them to the Cenotaph for the ceremonies. Being fairly young the best I could do was to tell them to sit still and be quiet but after they were over I turned em loose and told them to find ANY person wearing a uniform and just walk up and say THANK YOU. Im sure they were too young to REALLY understand but those Veterans hugged the HELL outta them.
