    Joy, what a blessing for you and George that you took time to ask him if he needed any help on that bike path in Austin. A new friendship was born that day. I have to say I was happy and touched to discover George’s story was true. I can relate with you that I wish I could have spent more time with someone. I was just thinking of my grandparents yesterday. I was wishing I would have asked them more questions about their lives, especially how things were for them as children and young adults.

    Your stories have a way of making tears surface, roll, and bring a smile as well. My kind of stories for sure!! Thank you for sharing George’s story.

      Thanks, Donna. I get choked up when I think about him. So many sweet men and women out there.
      Thanks for sharing.

    I don’t think it was a coincidence that you and George’s paths crossed. You were a good neighbor to him, and to me when we lived just a few houses away. I can honestly say I wish I had spent more time with you when you lived so close!

      I agree on both accounts. Disappointing that we are no longer neighbors, but so thankful we remain friends.
      Thanks for your thoughts.

    I think it was not an accident that you were there to help George and hear his story. Now you’ve been able to share it, maybe encouraging your readers to open their eyes, ears, and hearts to God’s purpose for us. Sounds like a sweet man, and I’m sure you made his day just as he made yours.

    I do wish I had opportunity to talk more with my grandparents. I have things from their homes that I wish I could ask them more about. My mother is still alive at 85 and has a pretty good long term memory, so I need to ask her. So, I try to spend more time sitting and hearing stories when with my mom. We never know how long we have, so no time like the present!
