Farewell to Dr. Maya Angelou

My heart was a little heavy last week, the death of Dr. Maya Angelou. She was fill of wisdom, talked about love and doing right. Her poem about   "Phenomenal Women", I wrote it down, and loved to say it remembering all the caregivers on this site and how they are "Phenomental Women"   Another poem "Just do right, never go wrong by doing what you truly believe in".   Dr. Angelou, you will be missed, but God needed an angel, so he called you.   Yvonne

A young man asked for food

So my husband and I were leaving the supermark, our shopping trolley full, when a young man stopped my husband. He told my husband his name and haded his ID in his hand. He wanted something to eat, he did not want money, so my husband took him inside, and brought him a dinner and a cold drink.   Iam so thankful that we were able to do that. We dont have money like that, we dont live in a fancy house, our car is on it last wheel, but there is always someone worse off.   Just wanted to share
