I picked up a guy walking by the side of the road tonight and brought him a couple miles to his destination. My "How are ya?" brought on a story of lost jobs, family problems and legal dilemmas. He was saying that he didn't know why he got up in the morning. I think it is amazing how when things are going well in life we think that they will always be that way, but the same is true when we are down on our luck. Why don't we remember that things were just fine a while ago and will likely get better soon if we just keep trying? I told him my fee for the ride was that he had to keep getting up each morning and it seemed to make him smile. All in all it made me want to go find another dude walking by the side of the road to pick up.
