if one were to judge the world by the chaos reported on the nightly news, it would be easy to get the idea that evil and all it's minions are in charge.
luckily, that is not the case. the news is all about sensationalism. the good things that happen around the world every day don't get reported because they aren't sufficiently sensational.
if reported at all, the single item of good news is the last in the broadcast. i can only assume that's to leave us with a good taste in our mouths after hearing all that's wrong in the world on a particular day.
i choose to believe the good people of the world greatly out number the bad. among the good are our friends the l.s, who live in san antonio these days. m. and j. practically raised our two younger kids, doing for them as if they were their own. we discussed making them guardians of c. and k. if ever an item of bad news on a particular night was about the wife and i being no longer among you.
their goodness continues. today, we received a delivery of flowers from m. j. and j., an expression of their constant caring. reading on this blog (i'm guessing) about me losing two aunties in two days triggered this latest token of their love.
i thank them so much for their very kind remembrance of two of the grand dames of the mc. clan.
as long as their are still people like the l. family around, the world will never succumb to darkness. a world of light and goodness will ever prevail. i truly believe that. i hope you do too. aio
