Do you look for the good in people? Well I just thought that I did, but something happened today.....and it changed everything. On our way to church this morning a local man came pulling out on the road going...oh about 5 miles per hour. I proclaim...."This guy and everything about him disgusts me. You know he just really bothers me. How disgusting can this guy be."
I am now ashamed that these words came out of my mouth. You see today both Caden and Kaitlyn had to go to the front of the church for their birthday blessing. It was a great proud moment as they looked so big in front of the church. Well after church the man, who I had earlier blasted, came up to Stephanie. He says, "Here are two dollars for the kids. I don't want to give it to them myself because I don't want them to take something from a stranger....and how about the baby, when is his birthday? You know I want to give him a dollar also."
We were blown away. This man has never talked to my children, but the $3 that he gave them today really changed everything. I was reminded that I need to always remember to look for the good in people. The smallest gestures sometimes mean the most.
