Generous Country America

“ Don’t worry about cancelation. I understand it’s tough to have chemo.”

Since our wedding anniversary (3/26) was approaching, I was looking for a vacation rental to make one more good memory of the anniversary with George. Yet, as usual, I may have to cancel the trip any time. As I told the house owner that I would need to buy insurance for the case of the cancelation, he surprised me with the thoughtful answer.

In the past, I have experienced the same kind of acts like receiving one more extra free stay from the house manager, or a cancelation of penalty of a flight from the travel agency, who learned I had cancer. This time also I was touched by the kindness of the house owner.

In the Republican residential primary TV debate on Thursday night, Marco Rubio, the 2nd generation of Cuban-American was saying ,” The US is the most generous country. It’s not because of tax write-off. It is because we are influenced by Judeo-Christian values…. “ I totally agreed with him.

God is being pushed away from this country more and more, but there are still lots of people who are applying the most important teaching in the Bible;” Love your neighbors as yourself.”

I have had food delivered every week when I have an infusion,been sent house cleaning ladies, and invited to musical concerts, baseball games, a seminar, etc. The genomic test fee, $5000 was discounted 100%, as well.
My gratitude will never ends, and no matter where this country will head, I must apply this powerful teaching just like so many generous Americans–Listening to Marco, I thought so.
