  • Pain could be as much a virture as it is a curse

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.
    After the first surgery his hand had lost quite a bit of feeling. On the one hand (no pun intended), that meant it didn’t hurt any more. But on the other, no feeling meant he couldn’t do his job, which requires using both hands and all his fingers.

  • To give or not to give

    A woman called the newsroom looking for help.
    She said she was a “sign flyer,” street lingo for “panhandler,” and that she felt targeted by local police who had issued her a $75 citation for approaching a car.
    “I wasn’t violating the law,” she said.
    She said she stands in front of a busy intersection near a shopping center and several restaurants, flying her sign that reads: “Breast cancer survivor — need help. God bless.”

  • Angels unaware

    A few weeks ago, I did something I never do — I picked up a hitchhiker.
    She wasn’t typical, if there is such a thing. She was older, maybe in her 70s.
    While on my way to the market, she flagged me down as I approached the end of my street and asked if I would take her as far as I was going.
    She said she had prayed for God to send someone, and that I was his answer, his “grace.”

  • How to be God’s favorite

     When my kids were little they used to ask me, “Who do you like best?”
    There’s really no way to answer that. How can you say, “Some days you and some days your sister”?
    Or: “Neither of you when you’re fighting with each other over hair scrunchies.”
    Even the standard “I like both of you equally” doesn’t satisfy a child’s question about who’s Mom’s favorite.

  • Lest I forget: Nothing is impossible with God

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.
