This column marks a full year of “Point to Ponder.” That means I was able to come up with 50 different points for all of us to ponder. The comments I have gotten from you have been thoughtful, welcome and at times very provocative. I really do just try and say something that will make you stop and think over your morning coffee. There is so much more to our world than we realize. We run when we get up in the morning to meet the world, during the day we get through problem after problem and then get home to decompress and try to get ready for the next day and do it all over again, day after day after day. Times are when I am not quite sure what day it is. So we come up with a Point to Ponder. It might be something my father, a teacher or someone said to me, something someone told me — or something I may have read. The Points to Ponder come from our days. Good days, bad days, fun days, boring days — any day. Life teaches us whether we want to learn or not. This world of ours is a good place, mostly. It can get challenging, but nothing we can’t handle. Have you ever met an angel? I got off the air one day and had just finished a show on angels. Yes, angels! I went home and on the way home almost sped over a 16-foot extension ladder in the middle of the highway I was on. I was able to stop but could not get out of the car for fear of an accident. It was getting very scary. Suddenly a car pulled in front of me moved onto the shoulder of the road. Two young men got out of their car, picked the ladder up, threw it over the embankment, gave me a smile and wave, got back in their car and left. From beginning to end it all took maybe four minutes. Were they angels? I say yes — what do you say?
