Leap Day.

Today is Leap Day, February 29th. I happen to have known someone born on Leap Day. His name was Walter Saylor and he was the best Father in law and grandpa a person could ask for. Never a cross word from him, never a selfish act, never a moment when you felt you could not count on him.

At his funeral 7 years ago, people spoke of how kind and compassionate he was. They talked of how he had visited them in the hospital or called on them when he knew they were going through a rough time. He was truly a kind, loving, godly man.

I hope someday that people will remember me as a kind person. I hope that someday, what I have done with my life will count for more than just the amount of dollars in my bank account or the "things" I leave behind.

Happy Leap Day, Walter Saylor! You and your kind spirit and warm smile are truly missed.

  1. Beautiful post! I, too, knew a man who was born on Leap Day. An elder in our church, he was exactly the same kind of man. I wonder if it has something to do with their birthdate?! More likely that they were both born again into the Kingdom of God! Thanks for sharing!
