Each Life Has It's Place

Saturday, April 03, 2010

We cannot always know which of our actions will help us to fulfill our purpose for being on this planet. All that we can do is to do our best. We can try to remain aware and to affect the lives of others in a positive way, by smiling more often and sending good energy out to those we encounter in our daily lives. Through it all, maybe we just need simply to trust the words, "Each life has its place." Trust this. YOUR life has its place. May you make that discovery with joy.

    It is so good to be kind to others but we must also be kind to ourselves. Life can be very unforgiving and it is not wrong to take care of ourselves. Love is to be given though and as often and as much as possible as far as I know but I have also learned to be careful. Blessings and Peace.

    i did a bad thing the other day. i think i'm going to hell for it. seriously. i was standing in line to get my son a gift card. the lady in front of me had a difficult problem. she turned around twice to apologize to me. i smiled and said no problem.
    the longer i stood the more my knee ached. a little old lady stepped up behind me. i smiled at her and said hi and she grunted and looked the other way. then she left the line and went and stood at the other register at the customer service desk. i thought hmm...whats that about. she looked at me and literally sneered. finally, after close to 15 mins, the lady in front of me was done. she once again apologized to me and i said no problem!! and happily limped to the register. the girl looks at me and says I will be with you in just a moment..this other woman was first. and heads toward ms grouch. I said "OH NO SHE WASN'T!!!" the cashier stopped and looked at me..i said ma'am i've been here for 15 minutes..i was here when you STARTED with the customer before me!!
    i looked at the grouchy lady and said Ma'm...am i wrong? were you here first? and the lady literally GROWLED at me and looked the other way. the casheir came back, took the gift card, charged it, and i handed her the exact amount of cash for the card. took less than a minute for my entire transaction. and i felt like crap.
    I should have let the old lady go. never mind that i was in a hurry to get home and see my son that i havent seen in months. see he was making his way here from a long ways away and i didnt want him to come to an empty house. Never mind that my sig other who is on his 4th go with cancer was sitting in the car waiting for me.....and thats really uncomfortable for him but i combine trips to save on gas and truly didnt think it would take me that long. Never mind that the man behind me said good for you..i was just behind her and SAW what she did. and never mind that i am in so much pain with this leg that large doses of heavy duty narcotic pain relievers are the only reason i can be upright. I should have let her go.
    I feel awful. my whole point in telling you this is that your blog hit home with me. I wasnt nice. I wasnt wrong, but i could and should have shut up and not said a word and let the grouchy old lady go ahead of me. Who knows what HER story is? maybe she is in pain..maybe she has had a tough life. she was there to get a lottery ticket. she had a card in her hand to cash in...thats how i know. maybe she spends her SS on that in hopes she can get dinner. i dont know..but thats the point..I DONT KNOW. i could have been the bigger person..and i wish i had been. I think by being kind to others we find our place..and i wasnt on Thursday. I will strive to do better....
