Linking up with Kate Motaung Five Minute Friday
Two Year Anniversary
What makes you happy? A beautiful sunrise, the sky painted with the hues of purple, pinks or the striking orange that reflects a flaming fire. This morning sitting on the porch with my mother-in-law the simplest thing made her happy. Here she is struggle to breath as she has Chronic Obstructic Pulmonary Disesase, oxygen-dependent, vision-impaired and no real complaints. We live here helping her stay in her home. This makes her son and I happy. Too many elderly are cast aside instead of treasured. The parable of the good samartan in Luke 10: 25-37 shares that we need to care.
So what made her happy? She has a lizard that comes on the porch every single morning to visit, she has named him Joey. He waits to hear her voice. She shared with me that she talks to him and he did some push ups for her. I would never known this had I not taken the time to have a cup of coffee with her this morning. Once again, what’s in your cup and what make you happy?
