Overwhelmed By Kindness

Today I was overwhelmed by kindness in many ways. Just seems like the 'kinder and gentler' you are, the more you run smack dab into it.

Actually, I've always been a rather meek and mild person (except when that final, last straw is broken and I become a fierce, raging incredible hulk).  Working on that. Anyway, I've been studying Beth Moore's Bible Study of Daniel for the last few months and thus, I have resolved to be a better person, one with integrity and loyalty like Daniel.

With that resolution comes a kinder and gentler world. The kind like George H. W. Bush (often referred to as 41) spoke of in his acceptance speech of his party's nomination for president of the United States in 1988. His phrase has resonated with me for years. And, in order to get a kinder and gentler world, you have to be a kinder and gentler person. Simple.

Such was the case earlier today when I met the wonderful staff, technicians, and customers at Haddock's Collision Center in Toccoa, GA.  Please don't ask why I was there, that will be another post. Hint: see photo below. This business has expert and quality care for you and your car! My short time there this morning has been an overwhelming of kindness experience that keeps me hopeful in our everchanging, sometimes kinder and gentler world.
