    Funny yes, especially if it happens to some other
    It happened to me I could't find my car, I was totally lost in the parking lot, I did not even know in which floor I left the car, is whether on the left or the right parking lot, nothing. Total panic!
    It is nice thing about having a chauffer he has to find the car

He came in, sat alone in an isolated booth, but we could see him wolfing down hamburgers and drinking coffee. He left without saying anything, we paid his tab (which wasn't very much at all) and when we got outside, he was gone. We felt the grace of God in being able to do a very little for him and in being at the right blace at the right time. It was a privilege and a gift.

I got out of the car and walked down to hand her some money. She was very gracious and interesting. I talked with her for a few minutes until I noticed the kids coming out of the store. I walked back feeling very blessed that I had a home and family.

    These are the things that make you realise that you were put here to do something more in life other than procreating and boosting the economy.

    I was listening to a radio interview this morning about ants, of all things. The scientist was talking about how ants are really the most successful animal on the planet, and how their biomass is more than any other animals, humans included. Their success was attributed to their social structure and their actions of altruism, of all things. (I've never thought of ants as altruistic!) The way they tend to their livestock, their willingness to sacrifice themselves for the good of the group, their compliance to provide what is needed, all makes them successful. Hmmm. If ants can figure that out, why do we have such problems?
