Crotchety

ImageI visit people who many would kindly describe as “crotchety,” someone who is “subject to whims, crankiness, or ill temper.”  Unfortunately what I see all too often is how long-time friends and family members stop visiting crotchety old Aunt Nellie, Uncle Jim, Grandma Sue or Grandpa Joe because that person, who everyone used to love, but who was a bit cranky. never told a soul what was going on in their heart, or in their minds.  Instead, they kept it all inside until it ate at their insides, made them angry, miserable, and crotchety human beings who pushed everyone who’d ever loved them away.

Let us all learn how to let others know what’s bothering us in a kind and constructive manner, and let them be there for us to help us work through whatever’s on our minds before it’s too late, and we, too,discover that the only friend we have in the entire universe is God.  Because we need more than just God in our life.  We need one another.
