    I would say these all describe Kathy. And you know what, that’s okay. Because I’m pretty peculiar, too.

    I have been known to allow people in front of me in the grocery store, even giving someone some much-needed change they were short at the time. They look at me like I’m a complete nut, but are thankful for the unexpected help. I also have been known to grab a cart out of the middle of the parking lot and taking it in the store with me instead of taking one so cheerfully offered as I enter the store.

    Being peculiar is something that everyone should seek to attain. It’s not difficult like trying to earn a degree or maintain a 4.0 GPA. It’s not impossible like losing those last 10 pounds that you gained last year during Christmas. It just takes listening to the sound of your own heartbeat and moving to the beat that your heart sets.

    People might think you’re odd. They might think you’re weird. I’d much rather be thought of as “odd” or “weird” than to not be thought of at all. I would rather have someone think that I’m a little goofy than to be thought of as a “stick-in-the-mud.” I can think of worse things to be thought of as being, and probably have been.

    I’ll gladly join Kathy in the “peculiar” club. I hope you’ll join us, too.
