You R Special ya know?
Age Group: Adult
You R special ya know?.....
The wee babe who didn't make it, after he was born...
The child hit while she was crossing the street on her scooter...
The people who used to own the grocery store on the main street, but, went of business, when bigger chains came into the town..and they now do other things..and you don't see the family as much anymore..
The Grandpa who passed on in his sleep...
The sister who tried to deal with cancer and finally lost her battle..
The penpal who you were writing to, when suddenly the letters and cards stopped coming..and now you wonder what happened? and why?
The neighbor who was always there for you, and has now gone to a great place to do more of their favorite thing "gardening" in heaven..
The friend of a friend's mother who you used to see at yoga classes who would always smile and wave to you, who you just found out passed on at age 96 and you thought that she was really in her early 60's!!!
The next door neighbor's little girl who you loved to play with, but, her daddy got a job in another state, and they moved..and you still think of her.
The lady who used to cross the street with you at school, and you always would look forward to joking around with her every morning, and found out that she had died from emphysema.
The man who used to read you stories at sunday school, and taught you about stuff, that years later, you thought, well, "it was fun, because HE taught me..and I didn't want to learn about those things in the beginning!" and he grew older and died of old age..
The cousin of a neighbor who used to visit a lot..and now, you never hear about that cousin any longer..and you wonder...where are they now? What are they doing with their lives?
The lady who liked to pay you to look after her dog, and her yard and all of her houseplants... she died a few years back...and you think about her sometimes now and again.
The man who used to work for a popsicle company , and in the summer he would hand out free popsicles too all of the kids in the neighborhood..even the adults!
You remember him ? He lived to a ripe old age of 90 something...and the house was just bought..and there are new neighbors there now!!
The little stores that used to prosper that sold all sorts of fun and interesting odds and ends..and now they are no longer in the area..because the rent was too steep to pay....You miss those stores, the people and those times!
The kids whom you used to take care of..and some had been babies, when you began working with 'em, and they grew up, went to high school, and some to other countries or to college..and you think of them a lot and wonder what their life is like now?
Kids you played games like four square, dodgeball, prisonball, softball, soccer, kickball, tether ball, hopscotch, marbles, football, and more..who have they become..where are they now? Have you seen any of them...do they have kids playing near by?
The Soldier who's myspace is STILL on myspace...and his music still plays some country tune..and he has loads of photos from women mostly, and he has some messages from all types of people saying "thank you for serving our country.and you are soo awesome, I wanna be like you!"..and he WAS 21...handsome as ever...but, now serving a "higher purpose" in another realm.
YOU R Special , ya know?
You make and you made a huge difference in all of our lives...
Just keep on goin' and don't stop reaching out..and getting to know the world, and caring about others around you!!!
