Bette Midler's Wind Beneath My Wings is an inspiration to all those who toil in the shadow so that the rest of us can have a good life. This goes out to the nurses out there, garbage and sewer personnel, engineers, clerks -- the simple people who go through life doing what their doing, without the high pay or the glamour that comes with the job but who, without then, all our lives will be a mess.
The next time you're at McDonald's and the cleaner comes and picks up your tray after you, thank her. For if she hadn't done that for the person before you and wiped your table clean, you wouldn't have had a place to sit and eat.
Don't take others for granted. Their as valuable as you are. You're not so special after all. You're replaceable. Everyone of us are. We're just kidding ourselves if we thought that our company, family or society will fail if we're not there. There may be a slight hiccup, yes, but life moves on, even for the grieving spouse.
Haven't talked to mum and dad for a while? Just pick up the phone and dial. They'll be glad to hear you, they always will. You will always be their pride and joy, no matter how old you are.
Acah and mummy, I love you from the bottom of my heart!
