I have been completely blessed in my life to be continually surrounded by good people. People who are have kind hearts, who know the importance of thinking of others, and people who have a sense of humor. I just visited one of our Huntersville Connection members in the hospital and her attitude was one of optimism, despite having a surgery that could have left her devastated. From my own personal experience, I know that her ability to laugh will lead her to a faster recovery. I look forward to seeing her at our next meeting.
People respond to smiles. People respond to a sense of humor and people — customers and prospective customers — will remember that YOU made them smile.
Harper, Kansas is a place I hold very dear to my heart, as it was my home away from home when my grandmother was alive. As a teenager, if I would get down about something, it would be my grandmother who believed that a chocolate shake would make me happier or a game of Old Maid could make me smile. We’d drive the dirt roads to watch the wheat on her land being harvested and laugh about silly things until I didn’t realize why I was crabby in the first place.
In the midst of one of the worst droughts the midwest has seen in a very long time and after a very disappointing wheat harvest, due to the weather, I just received the following email from Harper, Kansas. I hope it makes you smile.
IT’S SO HOT AND DRY in Harper, KS…..the birds have to usepotholders to pull the worms out of the ground.
The Methodists are using wet-wipes,
And the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn to water.
