Pop's Encouraging Words
Vicki, this is my comment for your post on encouraging words. I felt I wanted to say more than they would allow on that small space.
It's all about Pop.Pop is an amazing man, He did not have a lot of education, and he uses a lot of crude language,and I don't really know where the blame lies for him growing up with that kind of vocabulary.But no one can deny the fact that he is the most sensitive and caring person when it comes to his friends and family. He never meets a stranger. He can meet anyone for the first time and carry on a conversation with them till the cows come home.Yesterday was Stephensburg Day,and we spent most of the day, there helping with the grandchildren, while their parents worked with the festivities. They are both involved with the local Fire Department, and that event raises a lot of money for the department.However, the point I started to make is:Pop loves people. And it would be an understatement to say that People Love Pop. It took me a lot of years to understand how he was in that area. I began the first several years of our marriage, very jealous of the time and energy he put forth with each and every one of his individual friends.I heard him telling some folks yesterday, as I had heard him tell many others in his conversations,his philosophy on people.I don't remember who told him this, but he has carried it with him throughout his life and made it his mantra.He says,
"Each time, you meet anyone,make it about them."That is such a simple line, but he has practiced it and carried it out to the fullest, each time he speaks to anyone.Therefore anyone he has ever spoken to, feels like they are the most important person in the world. He is loved by so many people, my life with him can be compared to that of a celebrity.The spouse needs to realize early on, that their partner belongs to the world, or their marriage will not survive.There is no room for jealousy in a marriage, when one person has that magnetic personality and loves his friends and family as he does. He is a very caring person and you never have any doubt when taking to him,that you will love him and be drawn to him again, anytime, anywhere, anyplace you see him again, from that point on.When you are in his presence, he makes you feel special. That is a wonderful gift. And he is a great man in the eyes of the world just because he makes everyone he meets, feel special.Ask anyone who knows him, and they will tell you the same. Hershell Nugent is truly, a one of a kind, man.
