The Good, the Bad, and the President

Have you ever had that kind of day that was going just along fine then someone says something and it goes to bad?

Well my Friday started out good.   My route was a fun morning.  I love going up to Lake Goodwin and then into Arlington to go back to Everett and finished in Bothell.  Headed back to base, which is west of Paine Field,  Parked my bus and went into the building,

 Out on our grass area that over looks the north end of Paine Field all waiting to see Airforce One to land.         I was people watching more than looking forward to see the plane land.  All of sudden they all turned and looked North, raised the cell phones to take pictures of the  plane.   Yes a 747 with the United States of America on it's side and the president inside.  I did not even take pictures.  Unusual  for me I love to take pictures.    As soon as it landed everyone started to leave.

That was the start of lunch.   Lunch was uneventful, visited with coworkers then going out on my 2nd half.   It was not a hard one but towards the end of the day some said something that just blew to day to the bad side.

In my profession we are required to report abuse,  Any kind of abuse, child or elder.  Well someone said something that I had to report.

I don't think of myself as empathetic or compassionate but I feel for the elderly that are taken abuse at the hands of someone that is paid to care for them.   So I guess I am  just a person that Love God and wants to see that everyone is treated fairly, without harm.

In December our churches ladies group (Women in the Church WIC)  went out Christmas light seeing.   We combined it with visiting our shut-ins.  So about 18 of us invaded 6 or 7 homes to sing a couple of carols and give them a small gift.   

The shut-ins were so happy to see us.  Some sang with us, others smiled.   Hugs were given.  The happiness went both ways.  They were so happy and we were also happy.  

The men and ladies who for heath reasons can not attend church are not there by their choice but we can make their day a little brighter visiting them.

We have since lost two of the women to God's kingdom..     I am so glad we were able to see them and bring a smile to their faces and little joy to the night for them.   

We are going to continue the visits to our loved shut-ins.  

I have found that between my work and church I have a heart for the seniors and disabled.   God has shown me that we are equal.   Just a smile and hello will make someones day.    : )
