most folks wave

We live out in the country and I wave at the oncoming cars.

That’s a pretty weird thing if you’re from out-of-town, but I think that most people, even if they aren’t used to it, kind of get a kick out of it.

Most folks wave back.

Most folks wave back when they get used to me, in my white mail Jeep, waving at them.

It’s never a very active wave.

I’m not trying to flag them down….I’m just saying “hello”.

I’m just saying, “I’m in this world and so are you! Howdy!”cd

Maybe it’s just a habit and I’m not really saying anything.

Maybe I’m just waving?

Anyway, today, a couple of people didn’t wave, and I wondered what was up with them.

I thought, “they must be from out of town….”.

And then I thought, “Man….most of these people wave….but the ones I seem to pay attention to are the ones who aren’t waving. Those are the ones that I wonder about….”

And then I realized that most folks do wave.

Most folks wave.

I don’t know what is going to happen in the future.

I know that sometimes bad things happen to me and to my family….but that’s kind of unusual.

Usually we’re blessed beyond understanding…or belief.


Sometimes the things that we latch onto, though,¬†are the things that happen that are bad….or sad….or hard to understand.

But…..most times, the things that happen to us are pretty good.

I can’t spend any energy wondering why something bad happened….or why someone I didn’t know neglected to wave.

Most everything that happens is good.

Most folks wave.
