Often the Daily Intersection comes through what others say and do. For instance, business/service folks who go above and beyond in making certain the job is done well and the customer is pleased. Good service shows care for the other.
The best, however, came toward the end of today. We have been working on sanding and re-staining the railing on our front deck. Being at the staining stage, it has become tedious. A neat thing happened when our neighbor, riding his four-wheeler, stopped to watch me. You’re doing a really good job, he said. Thank you, I said, for encouraging me to keep going. Well, it looks great, he continued, you’re creating a masterpiece. What a sweet thing - for a 1st grade boy to notice and say. Thank you for being an encourager, especially at such a young age. Impressive! You can come visit anytime - there's a long way to go to finish! :-)
