ciated how he treated his mother and the im­por­tance of it! I have since found out that the son vis­its his mother nearly ev­ery day of the week.

My other hero I have seen in a large big box store who was in a wheel­chair. He is an em­ployee who greets the cus­tomers and checks their items as they leave af­ter pay­ing for them. He greets you with a smile and is pleas­ant to talk to. Barb/ I have talked with him sev­eral times. As the say­ing goes he is: “mak­ing lemon­ade out of lemons.” This gen­tle­man is earn­ing a liv­ing and mak­ing the best of his sit­u­a­tion by be­ing “Sun­shine” for the cus­tomers.

Speak­ing of Sun­shine, I have fun mak­ing up nick­names for var­i­ous peo­ple. There are two ladies whom I have come in con­tact with through Meals on Wheels. They brighten my day ev­ery time I see them. There­fore, they have been “stuck” with the nick­name of “Sun­shine”. I have ex­plained my rea­son for the nick­name and got­ten their ap­proval to con­tinue with my name for them.

So you see there are many def­i­ni­tions of what a hero is. It all de­pends whom you talk to. If you would be will­ing to share your def­i­ni­tion of a hero, please let me know at jef­frey­hall77@com­cast.net.
