so everyone has a story.
i know this.
i know this really well.
why does it take me so long to get them
sometimes?? just glad i got some of his today.
my ups man.
best guy in the world.
really really like this man.
we're close in age. and i just treasure him.
turns out he came over here from the philippines
when he was a teen.
he started describing life over there....
and i could feel the gratitude fillin all inside
me for all that i've got.
i live in a modest/small three bedroom/one bathroom
house in a lower middle class blue collar neighborhood.
as we talked, i was feeling like i lived in a castle.
WITH washing machine!!
i think the laundry part got me really good.
i asked about that.
he explained the hand washing of clothes, the skin
that would peel off his fingers as he washed his jeans.
i know all about this kinda thing 'out there'.....but
there he stood tellin' me all about it.
and i could see him remembering and it was all so
this morning i kept thinking about all the people
driving around the accident on the highway today. just
thinking that they'd be late to work. and i thought
about how we forget.
well, my ups man just reminded me of another way
my running water's gonna look pretty awesome today.
