At the Porch Warming...

We had an interesting meeting yesterday at the party. Just as we were preparing to leave for the airport, an older gentleman came up to us and stopped Keith. "Hey brother! I see you have a scar there on the side of your head. It matches the one I have on the opposite side of my head. Mine is from an aneurysm..."

And the two of them were deep in conversation, which left Keith feeling very grateful once again. Grateful that he is able to work and live his life fairly close the way he always had prior to his brain tumor. Our new friend had been a banker, but the aneurysm, being on the left side, left him unable to work with numbers and do the calculations he needed to do in his work. So he was left unable to continue his career. We were so glad he sought Keith out before we left. A little moment of grace in a hectic day...
