After all the rude behavior I witnessed this past week, between the South Carolina Senator yelling "your a liar" to our President , to Kanye West disrespecting Taylor Swift at the VMA Awards, I was beginning to think kindness, integrity and honesty were becoming antique ideas. No matter your music taste or political affiliation, the places those two men (I use the term men loosely) choose to express their opinion were totally inappropriate and immature. Shame on them!
This past weekend, something happened to my son that restored my faith in my belief that people are basically good and honest. I got a phone call from a guy named Mike. Mike was calling me from my son's cell phone. My youngest son is on vacation in Myrtle Beach and must have lost his phone. This honest young man Mike was calling the contacts listed on the cell phone, trying to locate it's owner. Now a less honest person could have found the phone, a very good phone I might add, and popped out the memory card and walked away with a new phone. My son contacted Mike and they met up later that evening to hand over the cell phone. Mike expected no reward, but was doing this because it was the right thing to do...gotta love his integrity! I'm proud to add that my son said thank you to Mike with a nice gift card (you make your mama proud).
So Mike...wherever you are, I tip my hat to you and say a huge THANK YOU!!!
Until next time..be kind and stay creative.
