Yes, so it is a new day. A happier day. A day where I have not spilled anything, dropped anything, or had objects fail in one way or another. Good biorhythms today. :)
A good day.
We went to Tucson for Hubby's 2 week after surgery appointment. They took an xray of his leg, and we got to actually see the new hip in there! And it is quite beautiful, I might add. But it is even bigger than I had thought. He liked when I said, "Oooh, it's so big!" Ha! Just kidding.
On our way out of town we stopped to fill up with gas at a 7/11. Even at a convenience store the gas is cheaper up there than in our little town. As we were filling up, a car pulled up to the pump in the other direction. A man got out and approached our car. He explained that he had to pick his son up from school, hadn't expected to have to drive today, and he didn't have any money for gas. Could we spare any? Hubby looked through his pack, discovered that he had none, but I found some in my purse. The man had already moved on to other cars in the parking lot asking for help. When Hubby went up to the car to give them money, there was a boy about 7 years old, a baby, and a woman that looked pregnant.
I felt really sad for the little boy having to watch his dad go from car to car to ask for money. I could see him anxiously looking out his window. What was the situation inside that car before they pulled up to the pumps? It made me wonder what his memories will be like, and who he will become because of his life experiences as a child.
In hind sight, I wish we had pulled out the credit card and filled their tank.
