     Thankful to hospital staff

    I recently spent three months in the hospital and six weeks of that time I was in the rehabilitation section of Baptist Health Hospital in La Grange.

     It was the beginning of a hectic weekend.  The supermarket had been jammed.  The lines were long, and the girl’s voice was already tired and bored as she mechanically told me, “Thank you.  Have a good day.”

  • What is the point in serving others?

     Two cows were grazing alongside a highway when a tanker carrying milk passed the field they were in. On the side of the truck in big red letters were the words, “Pasteurized, homogenized, standardized, Vitamin A added.”

    One cow turned to the other and remarked, “Makes you feel sort of inadequate, doesn’t it?”
