Today I was inspired to share a story with you after visiting my friend's blog. Jeanne Takenka challenged us to see the "gold" in others.
Here's a link to her blog:
There's a certain man I make contact with on average twice a week. Until a couple of months ago, he usually looked like he needed a bath and a clean change of clothes. I've always tried to treat him with respect because I don't know much of his story.
A couple of months ago, he got a job at an antique/junk store. Little by little this man has started cleaning up. He got a hair cut, he shaves, and he looks cleaner. Plus he wears nicer clothes that are clean.
I've been so impressed with the owner of the antique shop for hiring this man. He's given him dignity and a purpose in life. It's amazing how that can change a person.
I'm not in a position to hire people, but I hope to treat people with dignity and respect.
