Today when I drove from the Inn back up to my house at The Pointe at Whitestone a couple was sitting in their car on the side of the road. Thinking it might be someone looking at one of the few lots remaining I stopped to ask if I could help.
The lady sitting in the passenger seat said they just wanted to come up here one more time – while she can still see. She has a rare disease that is causing her to lose her eyesight. She remembered me from her visits to the Inn and asked if they could just sit there for a while and soak in the view. She said it was the prettiest place she had ever been and wanted to remember it when she could no longer see. She was crying.
Of course, I told her to stay as long as she wanted. Her name is Kathy and she would like to be remembered in your prayers.
How much we take for granted! We live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Look around you today and soak it in! Don’t forget to say thank you to the One who gives us all things.
