Kindness helps a bad mood…

So kindness is really in the small things and in the small ways we show God to others. Today when hubby and I went to get our blood work done the receptionist was in a bad mood….

Female Gorilla

She was overwhelmed with the computers being slow, fax down, and patients coming in. I made it my goal to show her kindness and make her smile. Soย I was as polite as I could be, patient, and complemented her outfit and efficiency despite the issues she was facing. By the time we left she was busier than ever, but smiling ๐Ÿ™‚ It felt good to make her feel better and not need anything in return. I like to do things and not get or need anything in return outside of the knowledge I showed God’s love to someone ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking Back….

I was going though some old photos after my trip and came across these from the zoo in Nebraska we visited when we were out there in March for my Grandmother’s 80th birthday. There are some amazing animals there and this one tiger was very special.

It said he was hurt and had to lose his one leg, but has adapted and recovered well. The only issue I have with any zoo is some animals don’t seem to have enough room to roam, run, play. I know most zoos rotate which animals are outside in the free space and which ones are in the smaller spaces. It just makes me sad to not see them all in big spaces, but I guess that for some animals it’s better than the alternative and this zoo does have big outdoor spaces ๐Ÿ™‚

There was also this one really funny ape that was playing with these stalks that look like paper streamers. He kept hiding under them then scaring the other apes as they passed or he would throw them up in the air and let them land on him. It was quite funny to watch and everyone was laughing so much. Funny how animals entertain themselves and us.

Well it is the start to another work week and I am already tired ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope this week goes smoothly for you all ๐Ÿ™‚ย Blessings ๐Ÿ™‚
