It goes without saying I admire and love my best friend. Not just because she is my best friend, although that is very important to me, but because, when she was moving to Alabama with her son and daughter-in-law, she invited me to join them. Her son built me my handicap apartment and she is on call for me 24/7/365. She even keeps
a baby monitor in her bedroom in case I need her through the night. She blesses me every day of my life. She even takes care of my cat Jewely even though she is very allergic to cats and even though my cat and her dog have a love-hate relationship.
I have some people who are part of my life even though they don't know it. Compassionate people have a high ranking in my regard and I am going to name three.
Do you ever watch EXTREME MAKEOVER on ABC-TV? The new series is on at 7 PM-CT Sunday. Sometimes it is a 2 hour show and sometimes a 1 hour show. Reruns are on CMT-TV in the afternoon. Anyways, a team of make-over specialists answer pleas from needy people and travel all over these United States to give what help they can in 7 days.
Ty Pennington, himself an ADHD person, is the team leader, and he has more compassion in his little finger than the average person has in their whole body. Ty doesn't care whether his client is caucasian, black, Alaskan or some other race, he cries for them all and laughs with them all.
Another TV personality is Troy Dunne. Did you ever watch THE LOCATOR? We get it on WE-TV Saturday evening.
Troy is the locator and his endeavor is to reconnect separated members of a family. Sometimes he's lucky, sometimes he's not, but when he is, he allows his clients privacy, and it takes compassion to do that.
The third person I would mention is MEREDITH VIERYA. She is co-host of the TODAY show which I never watch because I don't watch TV in the mornings. I do watch her when I can in WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE. She is so sad when contestants don't win anything at all, and she laughs with the contestants when they do win, and in my book that takes compassion.
Two more people I am honored to call friends are Marc Weiss, who sponsored me in to my home business five years ago and is always there to boost me up when it is necessary and last but not least in my book is Mary Beth Yacovelli, a peer in the same business. She and I talk at least once weekly, mostly just to hold each other up but sometimes to vent, especially when our downlines don't work as hard as what we do.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY, AND REMEMBER, GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
