Two weeks ago, we met a new member to our church. After chatting a few minutes, she proceeded to tell us all of her husband health problems, her problems, their financial problems...yadda, yadda, yadda. Whew...was glad to get away from that one. So, today, I greet her husband for the first time and mention the great weather we're having. He tells me ALL about his aches and pains when the weather is damp and all about his pain medications. Do they really believe that the world cares. Yes, I have empathy, but everyone has problems. When someone asks me how I am, I say fine. A neighbor told me that on my death bed, I'll answer fine. Everyone has aches and pains. Roger told me that I never complain if I'm in pain. Why should I or anyone else for that matter! There are so many other subjects that are more interesting!
