The Gift


When I used to work at a restaurant, I would always talk to an elderly couple that were regular customers. I worked there for 2 years and known them for a year. The woman together with her husband frequently got breakfast and dinner and I would see them in my day shift. Both of them had an inspiring story about their life and children that were all grown up now and have children of their own. They eat at the restaurant right after her dialysis and on the weekend her husband buys the groceries nearby. Ive learned many things while I was working and saying hi to them. Ive learned that people’s stories of their life gives us guidance so that in the future we wont make the same mistake as them but on the brighter side, learn that life is tough but we should cherish each moments and live and laugh with family and friends. Learn from the past, look forward to the future and cherish the present, thats why its called a gift. I appreciate the small things in people and I see Jesus in them.
