Life is a coin...

As I sit here and think of all the times I have complained about how it is taking so long for the next stage in our life to begin..I have to be thankful for all that we have..things could be worse...

Yesterday seemed to be a day for sad stories..one getting worse than the other..Doug mentioned about a homeless man who "hangs around the Mc Donalds" on Annacis Island..he is there every day..just "hangin around"..and every day like clock work, Jade (an employee that works with Doug) goes in a buys three coffees...one for himself , Doug and the homeless man..and often there is a warm  apple pies to go along with the coffee.....a kind heart, Jade has..for a young  man he has an old soul..to be so giving at such a young age is a trait to be proud of.

Story number two...Tucker has a dog park buddy named, Charlie..a beautiful golden retriever who's mom and dad, after 26 years working for the same company have now lost their jobs and are thinking they may have to find Charlie a new home...they work where they live and along with losing their jobs they will also have to find a new place to live..

And number three is Emme..Tucker's girlfriend....she is at the vet's..been there since Tuesday night..they are not too sure what is going on with her....we can only hope that all will be fine with her...

So, in closing  I have come to realize that things could be worse..we could be homeless, jobless or unwell...be thankful for what you have because you never know when it could be gone...

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
