Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
No matter how wealthy, no matter how poor.
No matter how healthy, no matter how sick or sore.
No matter how old and worn we become, we still count, they are gentle and kind, they care, they encourage us.
They are one of God’s many great gifts to us. We place our total trust, in him or her, and they with such ease and confidence can remove our worries, make us good as new. How often do we say thank you?
Today I’d like us to stop and think and appreciate them and their talents, their hard work and study, that total dedication that makes up their very being. All of which are gifts from God.
“Thank you” and “please” could and should be heard more often, don’t you agree, for and to all of the dedicated folks around us — all of those in public service. Teachers, especially. Think of how hard they have worked and studied to do what they do each and every day.
So from those brave young men and women in uniform, who leave loved ones behind, to the guy climbing that icy pole to get your electricity back on after the storm to name just a few (you’re following me I’m sure): Hey, a great big THANK YOU.
I was given a very special gift a long while back. Welcome to our wise “new” sayings directory. Full of jewels like this:
A teacher’s job is to take a room full of live wires and make sure they are well grounded. Author unknown.
Bye now, and “Thanks a lot.”
