Sometimes / June 25, 2009
Dear Viewpoint:

“Sometimes” - Fridays, today I want to share a true story with you, the names have been changed and this takes place in a beach community, I hope it touches your heart like it does mine. A set of twin girls, Reagan and Olivia were “left” at their “grannys” home one morning, no one knew this would be their new home, for things happen in life “sometimes” that are hard to understand. Their mother was experiencing problems that in a way she couldn’t control. Now Reagan and Olivia were beautiful little girls, on their first day at “grannys” they made a new friend, eight year old Alyssa, who is a spunky, wide awake child, became their best friend and Sarah, her Yorkshire terrier was a big hit with Reagan and Olivia. They would run and play and have the biggest time, one day as they played ball, the ball rolled over in “Mr. Crabby’s” hard, he was a sour man, as the girls stood looking at their ball resting at Mr. Crabby’s feet, they didn’t know what he would do. Well friends, a smile appeared on his face and he rolled the ball back to them and the next day, he started building a swing set for the girls and wouldn’t you just know it, the more Mr. Crabby and the girls became friends, the more Mr. Crabby likes “granny,” soon there were picnics at the beach, trips to the movies and Mickey D’s. Things could have gone very wrong in this “story of life,” but God led the way, hearts were touched, a “community” took Reagan and Olivia in to raise and by the way, today granny and Mr. Crabby have married and have custody of Reagan and Olivia and they are in God’s house each Sunday and Alyssa and Sarah are always close by. Always go with God, let him “write our story” and friends it will always have a happy ending.
