Occasionally I have the urge to post nothing but complaints on my blog. I guess this is a natural urge that most people have and I am no exception. In fact my first blog was nothing but bitching and complaining just about everything in my life. Needless to say my blog postings were not well received. I felt better because I was venting, letting steam off. What little feedback I did receive on those blog postings was always negative. It really wasn't a feel good blog. And I have to admit that with all my bitching, I really didn't feel any better.
So I took a break from blogging for about year. Then when I got back into blogging in 2005 I only did one post that year and that was about putting my house in Pennsylvania up for sale. I managed to hit head first right into the Great Housing Crisis and was so consumed with just trying to survive and not fall into a financial abyss that I didn't post anything else that year.
When I finally got back into blogging big time in 2007 at the urging of my non-blogging friend Bob C., my aim was to keep my blog posts positive and keep the bitching to a minimum (I wouldn't be me if I didn't bitch).
With my aching back (which is better by the way) for the past few days I've been having that urge to post a blog of my whole litany of complaints. But I held off. I'm glad I did because someone (who I don't know) sent me this story today by e-mail. This is just the type of story that I'm glad to end the week on. It is a story of human kindness, grace and inspiration towards one of our fellow creatures here on this planet that we all share. I love this kind of story and I hope you do too:
