This stamp spoke VOLUMES to me. Isn't it nice when someone takes time out of their busy day to say "Hi, how did your week go?" or "Your new exercise plan is working, you look great" or "You are busy, let me grab you lunch".
With the super busy schedules we keep, we sometimes forget to offer a few kind words in discussion. I believe it could be a generation gap issue as well. I noticed that at work when we have a meeting, it's all business - no chit chat. When I attend a meeting at church, there is a lot of kindness chitchat before the meeting gets started.
At the first few meetings, I felt ancy and couldn't understand why these people couldn't get the meeting started on time so I could go home already. After a few meetings, I realized THIS IS how they start all meetings and now I like it. There is something to be said when you sit down at a meeting and someone remembers your mom was injured and feels it is more important to ask about her healing than to jump right into a meeting.
Thought for the day - What can you offer to provide a little kindness today?
