I know this might not seem encouraging, but perhaps some people might benefit. We all know everyone eventually passes on, many having faith for a better tomorrow see things apart from the challenges we all face. I know, for I've met several heart patients, some with transplants, that are filled with joy and hope. Recentlt, I read about our first president, George Washington, who at 69 and on his last days shared that he wasn't afraid. His concerns were for the country, always one to try living better, and to help others. Perhaps, living for others and doing his best gave him hope. Hope is everything. Helping others. Encouraging others with the experiences we've gone through. All the best. God bless. 😇🤗

AHAAASAKaties. Think perspective gives a lot of hope. I think, sometimes, what we go through and learn from others can give us a new outlook and appreciation. One lady having had a transplant at a younger age is a joy to see and listen to. Her story is one of hope. 😇🤗

Yes, so important to not lose hope no matter how difficult. Helping others, especially during trying times, can bring such joy and happiness. Let's change our world for the better!
All my best,

It is amazing how much helping others can make you feel good. For weeks I had been leaving work and watching a man walk the last block to his assisted living home. His gait concerned me because one foot kept on getting hung up on the back of this other foot. He slowly walks with his walker. Well, one day it happened I was in my car at an intersection and the man in question fell down in the street. The person who was ahead of me who had turned stopped. I then stopped and blocked (with my car) anyone from not seeing the gentleman and hitting him. The other driver and I jumped out of our cars and together helped the man back up on his feet. He was not hurt beyond a small scrape (the gentleman knew how to fall right). I told the other driver what I knew about the man and that he was only a block from his home. Once we were sure the guy was ok we left him to finish his walk. I stopped by the assisted living place and told them what had happened and asked them to check the guy out when he got home. As I was driving home I couldn't stop thinking about how wonderful it was to be of help to someone who needed assistance. Now if only we couldn't get more people in this world to feel that way. What a wonderful world it would be.
