Open Letter Saturday

Today's the day I write a letter to someone or something that will probably never read this.  Unless one of you is friends with said subject and is willing to send this to them.

Dear Me:

You're wearing yourself out.  You have gone non stop all day long.  It's really tiring to see you going from here to there to everywhere.  Granted, what you're doing is great.  Selling fireworks for missions is a wonderful idea.  It's something that is easy and fun to do, but it can drain you.  Then you go to work to take your fella to his baseball game?  Wow, man you're a machine out there.  Then you go BACK to the fireworks tent?  And you didn't even sign up.  You just showed up and worked.  I guess that's a trait you should be proud of.  I mean, it's not everyday that people just do all they can for little in the paycheck.  

I guess that's the kind of guy you are.  People say that they wish people would work harder than they do now, but truth be told, they really mean other people than themselves should work harder.  Watching the whole 99% thing really put this in perspective I guess.  People want more in their pockets, and that's fine.  However nine times out of ten, the people that want more won't do more.  So, congratulations Tyrone.  You're doing what the 1% did to get to where they are now.  You're working your tail off.  You're doing what you should be doing.  The Bible says that if a man doesn't work, a man doesn't eat.  And although there are plenty of extenuating circumstances as to why some can't work, most of the people that won't work are just not interested in doing the bare minimum to get what they want.  

Way to go, Tyrone.

P.S.  That extra work should go into something amazing, like a bacon sundae from Burger King.  Get
