Thinking about Goodness Today

Comment Bubble

There are men in this world who you grow to admire having been raised by them.   There ways are not always obvious, but their hearts clearly point the way.  This week as we work on my Dad’s home to freshen it up a bit for his sister who he asked us boys to care for when he no longer would be here to do so, and as I sleep next to the ashes of my father-in law, Pop, who would have joined me in this endeavor were he alive today, I’m overwhelmed with the memory of their kindness, their goodness.  Both men, William Harold Lee and Robert E. Wood, often did things for folks in lieu of their own pleasure or convenience, and never asked others to do what they wouldn’t do themselves.  Where there was no time, they found it anyway.  I strive in the hopes my soul will be worthy of sitting with them again some day.  I love these men.  They taught me humanity.  They taught me quiet love.
