Easter weekend was emotional for me.
A friend passed away.
I got to spend time with my family and one of my brothers was not there.
I fell on concrete and scraped my knee like a kid and bruised my pride.
One of my sellers had someone rob their house.
My paperwork has been interrupted which makes me feel overwhelmed.
And then it happened. I got the phone call. An elderly lady who used to come see me for massage in my former career wanted to talk to me. I have not seen her in aprox. 5 yrs. She was lonely and so much had happened and she needed someone to listen just a little.
My tears came as soon as I hung up the phone. Why did she choose to call me? I believe it was because she had felt cared about by me.
Suddenly, I was overwhelmed with the knowledge that I had made a difference in someone else’s life!
I truly did care for her. It used to be my goal to make her laugh. This woman nursed a husband with Alzheimer’s and a Down syndrome adult child. Her devotion to her family was honourable to a fault!
In light of the death of a friend and the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus all in one weekend, I am so aware that in the end, the thing that matters, is if you have been a positive impact to someone along the way.
I choose to believe that in the afterlife, we will get to see the results of the things we have done.
That rewarding feeling I had after the phone call, that’s a part of the Heaven I picture.
