The Southern Waver

In pre-Civil War times, the southern waver was usually the nice-looking woman who lived in the mansion. She sat on the front porch and waved at the neighbors as they went by. Today it has taken a different meaning. It has become the senior citizen sitting on his front porch in his rocking chair. It is more prevalent the further south you go. Have you ever noticed the Senior Citizen sitting in his rocking chair waving at every car that passes? He is usually there every day, all day rain or shine. It’s hard to believe, but this is what he has looked forward to most of his life. Most waivers have spent their lives working the farm where they are now  sitting.imgres They have dreamt about the day when they would have nothing to do but sit on the front porch. If you are not too busy just pull into the stranger’s driveway, walk up and introduce yourself. Sit down and talk a few minutes and then be on your way. You have just made this man the happiest man in the world. The reason he waves at every car, he is hoping that one will stop.  When you drive away, You will also have a feeling like you’ve never had before, you have spent three or four minutes and made somebody’s day, it will be well worth the effort.
There are so many things we could do in everyday life that wouldn’t take  money, just a little time and brighten a person’s day. It could be a little kid or a group of kids playing hopscotch. We could play hopscotch for five minutes and not lose a day’s pay but how much would it mean to those little kids, I feel we could all start doing the little things and make the whole world a better place to live.

  1. Hi,

    Loved your story, i don’t live in the US I’m European. We don’t see those around much but is so true, sometimes a small gesture will make a big difference in people lives.

    Problem is that our society is always running, we hardly have time for our kids. Like this, we are surviving and not living.

    Thank you for your story Albert.

  2. I’ve seen these kind of people and they’re not only in America. I live in Turkey and you still can see these stereotypes around. I suppose it’s a global thing.

    But do they really think in that mindset?? I’ve never spoken with one of the but now you’ve got my attention. I just really wonder that if they all think in the same way.

    1. I appreciate you leaving a comment. Next time you see one, Walk up to min , Introduce yourself, And say I’m having a great day and just had to tell someone. I saw you here and stopped. My fiance just said yes and Im so happy. and then let him talk. I promise you he will give you some advice. Send me another and tell e what appens



  3. Hey Al:

    Thanks for this story. Reminds me of an elderly man who was confined to a wheelchair who lived near a frequently traveled road in Haiku (a decidedly rural area on the island of Maui). His family built a small shelter for him by the side of the road and, rain or shine, every day he was out there waving to the passersby.

    Those of us who used that road a lot loved the old guy. He was a reminder of a time when life was slower and more connected. It was a sad thing when he no longer was able to wave at us.
