A few months ago we had rented a cabin.
One evening in the cabin, I was reading an email from a friend of mine - a mum of a severely handicapped child who wrote that she gets vibes from their social worker that imply that her child is a burden to the world- taking up resources and giving nothing in return ( a complete lie because this is a very loving wonderful and in fact very brave child)
Worthiness is so difficult a thing to measure
We use the term so callously !
What is s/he worth ? we say when we want to know how much money someone makes.
The email had made me think
And R had been super clingy all day. Though we had gone to have family time - I really needed a little time away from family
So I went for a walk and in the woods. It was sunset and very quiet and outside another cabin - I found a bunch of bikers ( tattos leather jackets and all ). I could feel their eyes boring into my back as I walked and I envisioned the next day's news "Weekend holiday turns deadly for tourist".
As I returned back up ( keeping my fingers on my mobile in case I needed to call DH to hear my last words ) one of them approached me.
And said shyly "miss we was wondering if you would take a picture of us so we could all be in it "
As they all stood together solemnly raising their beers for a picture.
I realised that they were all VERY old and VERY sweet
How close and full of love for each other they seemed as they stood close ( but not touching as is the rule among Western men.Never touch one of your own gender if you are a man )
Anyway walking back I came upon this sign
This love filled sign for a deaf dog along with a group of old friends who wanted to be photographed together said clearly
Surely every life capable of love is very worthy indeed

I LOVE THAT SIGN! Your story was a heartwarmer too. I love the idea of bunch of old bikers wanting their picture taken.
so true that you have no idea of someone's worth, someone's story until you take the time to listen. Love this story and the sign.
Definitely made me tear up....sweet story.
I absolutely love this story, touching and so very sweet!
What is our worth? funny how we seldom evaluate our own, but are so eager and willing to pass judgment of
This is such a thought inspiring post.
Much could be said if only analyzed from the head. Accepted from the heart there is only one answer.
the picture was the perfect period to the post.
Indeed:) Thanks for the post.
That is a wonderful sign and story.
Just because our lives are different doesn't mean they are worthless or wasteful.
That's really sweet, and so true.
