I was waiting in line to get into a bar to meet up with some co-workers when Steve approached me. I had spoke to steve in the past but he did not remember talking to me. When I asked him for advice his eyes light up. He began asking me a series of questions.
Do you love god? Did your eyes open today? Thank you god! Do you have a house over your head? Thank you god! Thank you god!
Steve listed three or four more things all of which ended with him saying,Thank you god.
I saw Ronnie sitting in a wheel chair in between a crowd of people waiting for the bus. He looked over at me gave me a big smile and lifted up his cup. Ronnie gave off a very warm and welcoming feeling. When I asked him for advice, he smiled in a way that told me he had some wisdom he was excited to share.
Do the right thing in life and god will bless you.
When I asked Steve for advice a big smile came over his face. He said.
You know, the best advice I can give you is,
Live your life the best that you can, because it will become better than it was.
Don’t join the army. – Leonard
I ran into Leonard sitting on some steps around 11pm. After he gave me the advice, I had a nice conversation about his life. He told me about his time as a radio operator during the vietnam war where he would call in airstrikes and how much destruction they caused. He spoke about working on a fishing boat for a year until he decided to call it quits after holding on for life after being hit by 20ft wave after wave. I enjoyed the talk.
I ran into bill at about 10 pm. He was a happy guy and laughed at everything I said. Here was his advice.
If you find yourself in the desert don’t use an out house. – Bill
Bill Burst into laughter.
