"What's really happening..."

My blood results were in, my doctor tells me don't worry, it's probably nothing. If it was nothing why do we need further tests and antibiotic treatment? It may be nothing, probably is nothing, but the paranoia in the back of my head starts thinking about the end.

None of us know how long we have to live, it's a mystery. We could be in a car wreck tomorrow, or get hit in a crosswalk by a bus, or find out you have untreatable stage 4 cancer and are given 6 months to live, but go on of for 20 more years.

This all gets one thinking about life and how you treat others and how others treat you.

How do we know that the waitress we are irritable with because she forgot our water, or took the order for the table that came in after us, before us, might be because she just heard heart wrenching news?

Maybe a loved one just died, maybe she just got positive results form a mammogram, maybe she's getting divorced?

Next time your driving, walking or visiting with friends and see the person next to you crying, or next time someone in the service business is forgetful, or someone seems to be mistreating you, give a smile, give a head nod, or if it feels right initiate a hug, it may just be what makes their day. I am betting it will most definitely make yours too!
