JUST THE CLEANING LADY!!!
Although I was a nurse for 20 plus years, this is not
my story....but it is a good one.
During my second year of nursing school our professor
gave us a quiz.. I breezed through the questions until I
read the last one:
"WHAT IS THE FIRST NAME OF THE WOMAN WHO
CLEANS THE SCHOOL?"
Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman
several times, but how would I know her name? I handed
in my paper, leaving the last question blank.
Before the class ended, one student asked if the last
question would count toward our grade.
"Absolutely," the professor said.
"In your careers, you will meet many people.
ALL are significant. They deserve your attention and
care, even if all you do is smile and say hello."
I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her
name was DOROTHY.

This story keeps SPRING very much alive in my
"Don't just pretend to love others.
Really love them.
Hate what is wrong.
Hold tightly to what is good.
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight
in honoring each other.
Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the LORD
Rejoice in our confident hope.
Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
When God's people are in need, be ready to
Always be eager to practice hospitality."
Romans 12: 9-13 NLT
I THINK IF THE WORLD LIVED THIS SCRIPTURE,
THERE WOULD BE NO WARS, NO HATE, NO
JEALOUSY, NO SHOOTINGS, AND THERE
WOULD BE NO DRUGS AND DRUG DEALERS
DESTROYING OUR CHILDREN'S LIVES.
THERE WOULD BE NO CHILD MOLESTERS
AND PARENTS ABUSING THEIR CHILDREN.
SOUNDS LIKE HEAVEN TO ME.
ALL I CAN DO IS TRY TO MAKE
BY THE WAY I LIVE WHILE I AM HERE
ON THIS EARTH.
and keep you in safety and peace until we
I LOVE FOR YOU to stop by and visit me.
It is like sunshine on a warm day.
Have a Sugar Sweet Day.
