The good in our lives, the best in our lives, are made up of memories! Memories that are created by being, and doing things, with the people we love and care about!
It takes a Special Person to be an individual who goes out of their way to create these memories for the rest of the world! Many times these people aren't even aware that they are the ones who make the memories happen.
There are also those individuals who know they make that difference. People who are instilled with a natural sense of humor, timing, and spontaneity. They have the innate ability to fulfill the unthinkable duty of follow through, in spite of those standing around in a state of disbelief or shock!
Without individuals such as these, it would certainly be a dull and uninteresting place to live. A place of normalcy probably, but not a place that we want to stay around very long.
|Karen is one of these individuals!
A Special Person that the world is lucky and Blessed to have around. Yes,
I suppose that there are those who might cringe, feeling uncomfortable
with the antics that they might not do themselves, but laugh or talk about
the memory later, they WILL DO, for these are some of the things that create
the memories we will talk about for many years to come, and throughout
In the hot, sultry summer of
1998, in Pleasanton, California a heat wave had come our way and left us
pretty miserable, were it not for the air-conditioning in our office building.
No one was looking forward to leaving and heading home that evening, due
to the heat outside.
A crowd of people around the office complex started watching from their windows and calling out for others to come and watch this crazy "cool" woman in the fountain. It's true that while it made most people take notice and start to laugh, everyone probably thought she was crazy. But at the same time, I believe most people were envious of not only her being cool in the water, but more likely, because here was a woman, who in being herself, was able to make people around her laugh and take home another wonderful memory that kept THAT day from being dull, and normal.
