With permission

I have asked permission to copy this comment to a post from Nov. 19, 2008 on Changes in the Wind about wanting to reach out and touch people. This was so very special, so I wanted to start us of with it....

Changes, I love this idea! As our small town has grown and become crowded with busy people the heart has gone out of it. I no longer feel the same way about Prescott..I wouldn't tell this, but since the idea is to tell..when I was at the Dr.s office the other day a woman came in, sent to my specialist by some other Dr. She was obviously stressed and needed to see him soon because she was from out of town and was also responsible for another person who was having a CT scan somewhere else. The office girls were indifferent to her plight and said she'd have to wait an hour. The waiting room was jam packed and I watched her find a chair, obviously fighting off tears. Her shoulders were slumped..her feet were swollen.. She was stressed to the point of breaking.I went up to the window and offered to give her my appointment and come back in an hour to take the slot they'd allotted for her. They argued, I persisted..finally they agreed to..just.. slot her right in.I've felt good about that ever since:)
