A Reason For Hope on Labor Day

Posted: September 5, 2022 by datechguy in Uncategorized

Today my sons took my wife and I out for supper at a local steak house chain.

There was a young lady who was our server, she was attentive and efficient making sure we had all we wanted and me being me I opened up a conversation.

It turns out she lives an hour away (the gas price must be rather high) in a rural area. Despite this and the price of gas she was rather cheerful.

During our spaced talks it came out Tuesday is her day off meaning she works six days a week I commented on the long drive and she said it was very peaceful and quiet which is handy because it’s not quiet at home with three kids.

Here is the kicker. The kids aren’t hers, they are her siblings, she has been taking care of them.

So consider this. Here is a young lady, working six days a week with an hour drive each way to work and three kids to raise that aren’t her own.

Yet she talks about all the good things there are in her life and takes joy in simple pleasures.

I don’t know what her politics or her religion are, I don’t care but as long as there are young people like this there is hope for the country and its future.

    I hope you saved the receipt. I send that lady some money.

  2. Russ says:

    I hope you saved that receipt. I would like to send that young lady some money. It sounds purvey but I am not.

    “I don’t know what her politics or her religion are”

    I know what they aren’t.
