This past week SB and I volunteered nearby, Beverly Hills. Renewed friendships, dug deeper into just a passing hello or how you doing from acquaintance's. Made new friends, found a kindred spirit that is 20+ years older, walked up and down Rodeo drive, knocked at door where Gene Kelly use to live, shopped an estate sale, had my picture taken by tourist's on a star tour, apparently I was standing in front of a celebrities house. What I learned, no matter where you live or work or volunteer, we all have the same problems, rich or poor, we all have aches and pains of aging, of the economy, of family issues, well at least at the moment. When you think of Beverly Hills you think of celebrity and fame which are fleeting, what matters are who we are inside and our relationship with our creator. It's so nice to be with people who have endured all kinds of things in life yet we all have a common belief that gives us hope of a better life that isn't so superficial. Getting off my soapbox now....it's my Mindless Monday, so that's part of what is in my jumbled brain.
