Lessons in life… - Posted by SusanL.–FL

Someone sent these to me a couple weeks ago (and they were still good the second time around).
After I read ?Lesson 1?, the very FIRST person that popped into my mind, (who I didn?t know at work), was a fairly new female maintenance worker. A quick glance revealed a ?beat down in life? look about her?work clothes, older vehicle, long hair (probably never having seen the inside of a beauty salon in ten years). Pleasant person but she kept strictly to herself. (The feeling I got was like the upper crust and the lower crust of society daring not to mingle?if you know what I mean.)
The next time I rode the elevator with her, I introduced myself and asked her her name. (Her name was Carol.) From then on, I made it a point to say hi to her when I saw her.
Not many weeks after our elevator ride, I began to notice a difference in her. She walked with more confidence and seemed to have a little spring in her step. She was friendlier (and not as protective of herself).
Who knows—maybe circumstances in her life had changed and things had gotten better for her. Then again–maybe she felt that ?someone out there? had taken the time to find out who she was and treat her as a person. Who knows.
So many ?lessons? for us to learn as we go thru life.
Speaking about beauty salons?. I got a haircut the other day (Went in with L-O-N-G hair.) Told the gal to take off ONE inch. NOW I?m wondering if she thought I said LEAVE one inch?.
Feel about as close to a human cue ball as one could get?
