I was reading a post about things that touched you today and it made my hands start to itch to get my thoughts down on paper, well on the keyboard I guess. Little things in life really touch me. This morning my cat was so cute I just wanted to stay home and hug him all day, he touches me with his unconditional love.
I was driving down my street this morning and there were a bunch of birds at the bottom of my neighbors driveway enjoying the runoff water from his lawn recently being watered. When I see something in nature that inspires or touches me it’s almost like I see it as a snapshot through a camera lens. It was quiet, peaceful and it kind of moved me. I saw the same thing yesterday and was hoping to see it again today as I pulled out of my driveway.
I drive by this house on my way to work that I always look at, its just part of my morning routine. There is an older couple that lives there and on warm days I will see them sitting on their porch in their old chairs having coffee and reading the morning paper. I don’t see the woman anymore and it makes me really sad, I worry she has died. I still watch for him but don’t see him outside as often, he’s never sitting in his chair anymore. They are part of my life now and I worry about him, this stranger that I do not know but care deeply about.
The part about the old couple is very touching… I wanted to go there and visit them to see if the lady’s ok…
Nice story, well written.
That was a real nice read Sandy…. I hope the old woman is fine…maybe you can go visit and check if she’s alright one day…you know….something you do just coz you want to kind of thing…
That is the sensitive side of you that I know so well. The child and adult who cries over happy and sad things. Good work.
This is a different side of you, I like it. Nice writing!
Sandy I loved this, and espically the two chairs. Nothing beats two chairs on a porch for togetherness!Your mother is very right. I so much look forward to your blogs, you are very talented, and you are just starting, go girl. Now I am going to attempt to be a follower. Love ABL
This reminds me of the elderly couple that use to walk by my house EVERY morning… hand in hand… even in the dead of winter. They amazed me!!! I loved talking with them 🙂
I think you should stop by with a plate of cookies and introduce yourself and let them know that their presence made a difference in your day 🙂
Alternatively, the woman (cougar) could have run off with her young internet lover.
(Don’t tell anyone but it did bring a tear to my eyes.)
A softer side 🙂 Very much enjoyed!
