I Have A Mad Man Friend


Every morning, whether I’m on my way to work or church, I try to greet each person I pass with a smile and a good morning. It makes me feel good even when I’m in a bad mood and makes me feel even better when the person responds.

A few years ago I moved to a new area. I continued this practice. One morning I noted a mad man sitting at the corner of my road. As I passed, although I was in a hurry, I said “good morning”. The man did not answer. This continued for almost 4 months! One morning I decided that because he seemed not to hear me, I would say nothing. To my surprise as I passed, not saying anything, the man said “good morning”.

To this day, wherever I pass this man, he hails me even when I don’t see him. Sometimes he is in the middle of his mad ramblings but he always stops to greet me. There have even been times when this man stops me to complain about issues he is having and although I don’t understand a word of what he is saying, I always stop and listen. When he is finished, he would tell me “thanks and have a good day/evening”.

The point to all this rambling? Good morning is a very powerful phrase.

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
