That’s right, rather than clean out their old litter box; they brought it along to Wal-Mart, bought a new box and left the old, dirty box sitting next to their cart…in the parking lot…for someone else to dispose of!
I hope that person gets a lump of coal that won’t burn for Christmas…just for being so thoughtful toward others.
This is the very reason I would rather not go around the stores and people at Christmas…They disgust me and spoil my holiday as I watch people completely allow commerce and greed to overshadow the real meaning of Christmas.
I love the commercial on TV right now that shows a man and woman decorating a room with all kinds of holiday decorations…laughing and smiling….and sometimes exchanging loving looks toward one another as they continue to decorate. Finally it shows them both tip-toeing across a hallway to another room as an elderly lady enters the building from her apparent shopping excursion. The next view shows her now obviously entering her apartment and her reaction to her young neighbor’s loving gesture of decorating her apartment for Christmas and giving her an observably reminiscent holiday spirit long ago lost by her inability to decorate alone.
Thank God for this type of message occasionally offered by thoughtful people who still feel the spirit. Thank God for memories also…for they are sometimes all we have to cling to in old age unless someone young is smitten by the spirit and is guided to do some kind act for or with an elderly person. I find it hard to understand why people get that special feeling deep within their heart by doing something special for people at Christmas time, yet can’t comprehend that these feelings can be theirs every day by doing kind deeds all year long!
Good deeds and memories…these are major components to a warm and contented feeling inside that God gives for kindness and loving toward others, not only at Christmas time, but all the time. If you get used to doing good deeds for elderly people daily, you find yourself holding a door for others, stepping aside to allow others to pass and there won’t be so much stress and tension in our lives.
You might even see the wrong in letting your old litter box sitting in the middle of a parking lot and throw it away correctly yourself…
